young crafters unite blog hop!




**if you're looking for the 'Cards that Care' blog hop post - please click here**






today is the blog hop for young crafters unite - masculine cards!






you should have arrived here from Bee's blog! if you're just arriving here, please head over to the young crafters unite blog for all of the details! there are some awesome sponsers for this blog hop: Simon Says Stamp and Paper Smooches! Simon Says has generously donated two $25 gift certificates, and PS has donated their brand new My Guy stamp set for one lucky winner!




so, here we go, here's my card:









i have a hard time making masculine cards, that's why i wanted to participate in this hop - to challenge myself! so when i made this card, i went with as many masculine cliche's as i could think of!



- muted colors - check



- a phrase about being a man - check



- 'math-y' and graphic type paper - check



- oh, and of course, mustaches!! - check!!









i think this card still captures my sense of humor, even though it's not girly! i used paper smooches stamps (vegtastic) and the craft's meow stamps (Fun{tache}tic) to make them 'macho!' :) the sentiment and the mustaches are popped up for dimension. each veggie was paper pieced, too.






there, i hope i made it masculine, and i hope you enjoyed it!! next up on the hop is Melissa's blog! check it out!!






enjoy the rest of the hop!
