Young Crafter's Unite Blog Hop

Hey Friends!  I'm so happy to be participating in the Young Crafter's Unite blog hop today. If you're unfamiliar with YCU you must go to the site and check it out!
You arrived here by way of the lovely and talented Britta Swiderski's Blog. Isn't she amazing? I'm always blown away by her work.

The theme for this hop was to create a masculine card.  Something I always struggle with. The cards I usually make for my husband are still somewhat girly in my opinion (but he doesn't seem to mind!). I also tried to keep it super clean and simple. I think it was a success! It was super simple to make and I can see myself using this layout/idea to make more cards.

Thanks for stopping by, and keep hopping on to Karin's Blog!

  1. Welcome back! I love this card. I have those dies, and am always looking for good ways to use them. This is so perfect, and can be made in the recipient's favorite colors. Pinning to case.
