Masculine Anniversary, PP248

Hello my friends! This week at The Paper Players, the wonderful Joanne is hostess and she has a timely challenge for us, Masculine cards. Between birthdays, Father's Day and graduations, I am in need of quite a few masculine cards in the coming weeks, so this was right up my alley. I did come to the conclusion, though, that I need more masculine stamps. Time to grease up the credit card! 

My anniversary is coming up soon too, so I thought I'd take this oportunity to make a CAS anniversary card for my hubby. I let the handsome patterned paper do all the work, and just added a sentiment that was both die cut and stamped, and a simple button embellishment. 

Since the card was so simple, I thought I'd jazz it up a bit with a matching envy from another coordinating paper. I think this stack of paper is so perfect for guy cards. 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Say It Happy (Technique Tuesday)
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Basic Black (SU)
Designer Series Paper: Adventure Bound (SU)
Ink Pads: Versamark 
Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Straight Talk Happy Die (Technique Tuesday), Envelope Liner Die (SU)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Silver Designer Buttons (SU)

Please pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players, and even better, play along with us, too!

Inky hugs!
