For The Macho

UK's Mother's Day has just passed on the 3rd April (but elsewhere celebrates it on 8th May) and I can't help but to think, "So what's for Dad now?" I know Easter should be the next card occasion or maybe the current Spring season too... but I am in mood for making a For Him card design. And it's not often I feel like making cards for men as it's always easier to make cards for ladies, isn't it? 

Besides, I have been making Spring themed cards and if I were to make Easter cards, I don't want to be using mere eggs and rabbit sentiments (just like santa, reindeer and snowman on Christmas). People should know/remember the true reason Easter and Christmas are celebrated. Some people may think religion may spoil the fun but hey, these days are meant to commemorate Jesus Christ for His gift of sacrificial love.

Anywhere, here's for the macho...

Hat off to the Macho ;)

With daylight

Had to trim the rounded edge of the blue piece after being punched with Threading Water Punch to make it look edgier and less lace-looking or feminine ;)

With indoor lighting

Realized I had to make two and another to be stocked up.

Oops, no I need to send out 3.  So I would need to make 1 more if  I want to keep 2.

Promarkers : Aegean, Denim Blue, Duck Egg, Raw Sienna, Saffron, Blender
Stamp : Cowboy Hat (May Hughes)
Paper : 5"x7" Opalescent Blue Card, Purple Cardstock, The Spring Stack (DCWV), Brown Cardstock, Blue Cardstock, White Cardstock

Miscellaneous : 1.5cm Black Satin Ribbon, Brads, Embossing Powder & Pad (WOW!)
Tools : Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (Provo), Heat Tool, Ornamental Die (Tim Holtz Alterations)
