You're the Man Day 4

I loved hearing about who all you would make cards for! Here's my list of masculine cards I have to make from time to time:
1. Dad and Father-in-law
2. Brother Daniel
3. My two bother-in-laws
4. Chase's grandfather
5. Are many many uncles
6. Our co-workers
7. Our guy friends
8. Well and off course my number one guy, Chase

That's a lot of guys, and even if you just made cards for their birthdays that would be a lot of cards. For today's card I wanted to show you another card utilizing that fabulous bolt. I just love how versatile that thing is (and just wait in the video I have another way to use it that can be used for any card background).

For this card. I stamped the top of the bold eight times, and embossed the image. I punched out all the squares, matted them, and created this clean grid style card. 

This card so reminds me of the Brady Bunch. Weird huh. 

Today I also have two videos to show you how this set works. I've broken the videos into to parts for easy viewing.

Part 1: You can also view at YouTube here
Part 2: You can view over on YouTube here.


And now the fabulous Dana! Just like the last two days I challenged the Design Team and Guest Designers to not only make cards for men, but to also make an everyday card as well. Both of Dana's cards are just so cute!

Aren't those so cute. I just love the real screws she used. And see that "O" pattern on her girl card? That's the "O" from Bro! That's one idea I'm certainly going to use from Dana.

Don't miss tomorrow! We have two very special guest designers that will be showing off their creations! And then at midnight on May 6 the set will be available, just in time for Father's Day next month!

I'd love to hear your favorite technique or stamp from the set so far! All comments enter you into a chance to win the set, which will be given away at 10 pm central May 5.

And I just wanted to thank all of you for your continued support! I know you all have tons of choices when it comes to where you buy stamps, and I don't take that lightly!
