Joy's Life Design Team 
I am super excited to be part of Joy's Life Design Team Thursday.
She really put together a super talent group
to inspire us all...So I got Joy stamps set in
 the mail and was Joy super generous 
you can view Joy Full line of stamps here...
Joys Stamps Sets

I decided to do a card for my husband for
Valentines day, now before you say
where the Red the Pink the sappy sweetness...
I did say it was for my husband...I wanted a card that scream MANLY Man...
So I pulled out my
Cricut Lite Handy Man Cart
Cuttle bug Folder ~ Diamond Plate
Gun Metal Card Stock
Silver Card Stock
Kraft Card Stock

The card was cut at 5 1/2 by 4 1/4
I used my cuttle bug and embossed the Gun Metal

The bolts and wrench where cut at 4"
I used a EK Success punch for my
yellow backing for the sentiment
"I'm nuts a bolt you"
I just love how this turned out and it's perfect for
Manly Valentines Card...

The Stamps you can pick up at
It's the Father and Son Stamp Set
I also stitch around the edges with black gel pen
and added white for shine...

I really hope you enjoyed my manly card and
Don't forget to check out all the other awesome and talented designer we have to inspire us all...

This is the best "GUY" card I have ever seen!! The inking is really good but I think the bet part is the diamond tread embossing. How did you do that?

Cricutting Wendy said...

Ok, nevermind. I see the diamond plate folder on your post. I've never seen that folder though.

SherriC. said...
