June Card Swap

The theme for this month's Crazy Card Swappers (part of the SU monthly stamp club) was to make a masculine birthday card (for age 16 or older), and we either had to use 3 different punches, or one punch three different ways. What the...?! Well, since I have a brain fart very little imagination when it comes to punches, there was no way I could think of three ways to use one punch, so I opted for the three different punch look. ;-)

I did use the tag punch a bit differently. Instead of punching a tag, I punched a tag-shaped hole and stamped the " 2 U " inside after inking the edges with SU Chocolate Chip craft ink. I also inked the edges of the punched circle and oval with the CC ink. I'm loving that
Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper frpm Stampin' Up! It's really nice, heavy textured cardstock, with lovely coplors/patterns. Too bad it's being discontinued, because of the new In Colors coming out.

Anyhoooo, I thought this would do for a young man's birthday. Gosh, I do struggle with masculine cards. Wonder if I will ever outgrow it?

Have a lovely week!
