Gina K Design Design Team Challenge and Hop for June!

Hey ya'll and welcome to our Design Team's June Blog Hop! Our challenge this month was to feature cards or projects with a Masculine Theme, being that Father's Day is right up on us, hope we give you a bit of inspiration for all those men in your life!

If you have came from Carolina Buchting's awesome blog, then you are in the right spot! If not, make sure you head over to StampTV's Main Forum where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

Ok, now for my card:



I decided to make what I call a pocket card. I took a kraft colored envelope and sealed it, then used my circle cutter to cut on opening on one end to put this little insert I made. Here it is halfway pulled out:



I added a belly band around the envelope and stamped on it too. Tied the key on to go with the inside theme and that's about it! Here is a picture of the inside all by itself:



I really like how this turned out! And got a guy friend that this is going to, that I have known for about 35 years! :D

Ok, your next stop on the hop is the oh so talented Donna Baker's Blog....I cant wait to see what she has to show us!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find a bit of inspiration for all those difficult masculine cards! (and difficult MEN! haha!)
