This idea is really quick and easy and I’ve used it for a masculine card but it could just as easily be feminine, kids, or anything else with a change of the Designer Paper and colors.

masculine-Q-EI used the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper stack for my card.  I cut the sheets in half for this design.  This paper stack is great for masculine cards it has some nice patterns on one side and then photographed images on the other.  The one i used here is like a knit sweater.

The Crazy About You stamp set has become one of my favorites and if you get the bundle with the coordinating Hello You Thinlits you have endless possibilities for what you want your card to say.  I cut out the word happy from Early Espresso card stock and then stamped “Father’s Day” on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I stapled both of them to my piece of Designer Paper and then put it on the front of my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Just to add a little bit of extra – if you look closely in the upper left and lower right corners I added some paper piercing using the Essentials Paper Piercing Template, a Stampin’ Pierce Mat, and a Paper-Piercing Tool.

You can’t see it here but I stapled a piece of Whisper White card stock on the inside of my card too – so there was an easy place to write a message.

I hope you like this simple idea.
