Masculine Cards

The last month (May) was a time to get ready for Father's Day.  I'm usually a day behind rather than a day ahead.  Once I saw the new Jack Workshop Your Way, I became really excited about making masculine cards of any kind.  So what do consultants do when that happens?  They have a workshop!

These are the cards that we made which are all standard size cards (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"):


Here is a closer look at each card.  First such a handsome guy:


Next is a card that came from the optional card workshop (that can be downloaded from the here).  I always add a few changes just to switch it up:


Finally the last one.  I just love this cutie bear!  I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest that gave me the idea for this card, however, I can't remember where I saw it but that had such cute projects.  If this was your idea, I'd love to give you credit here.  😊

Below you will find my project which is a 5" x 7" card for a retiring supervisor who will be leaving at the end of the month:


Next is the inside of the card:


And I thought you would be able to see from a close up my use of the Clear Shimmer brush on the umbrella and the sand to give it that little extra glint but I'm not sure it's showing up:
