"My Guy" Cardz TV Challenge # 10

Welcome to the "My Guy" Cardz TV Challenge #10!  Our wonderful DT leader Mary over at Cardz TV gave us a Challenge to create a card, gift, or project for a masculine birthday, or Father's Day.  For this post I chose to make a card for my daughter to give to her father.  For this card I used the Cardz TV Stamp set "Father's Day."  This is a wonderful set.

I'm not sure what this style of card is called.  I used Bazzill cardstock and cut it at 5 1/2 x9 3/4 and scored it at 1 1/8, and 5 1/2.  I found the double sided patterned paper at a local craft store called Bennion Crafts.  It's by Moxxie.   I used A Child's Year for the silhouette.  I cut it out at 2 1/2 as well as the shadow.  It can be found on page 40.  I love the little pony tail.  I used Elegant Edges and cut the oblong piece at 3 1/4, as well as the shadow.  I used mini-buttons from my stash in the corners.   I used a 3/4, 7/8, and 1 inch circle punches for the D A D on the outer flap.  On the 3/4 circle punched pieces I stamped the letters using a Studio G alphabet set with Rich Cocoa Memento ink.  I used Paris Dusk Memento ink for the front and inside sentiments.   On the inside, I used my favorite EK Success corner punch.  I used a half circle of Velcro to close the card.  And of course I put a picture of my sweet girl on the inside.

Now, it's your turn!  All you have to do is create a card, gift, or project for a masculine birthday, or Father's Day.  Then, go to Mary's Blog and enter your project with your name and a link to your blog into Mr. Linky.  Easy peasy!  You have until Midnight EST, Sunday June 10th.  Mary will be using to pick a winner.  She is giving away a set of Cardz TV Stamps, WINNER'S CHOICE!!!!  She will announce the winner on Monday June 11, 2012.   I hope you come join us!  I hope you stop by my other DT sister's blogs and check out their awesome projects.

 I'm going to have a second post on Saturday for the Challenge.  I hope you stop back.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
