Outlines - Make it Manly

It's time for a new Outlines challenge today, and starting this week it's no longer just a design team challenge! We are opening up the weekly challenges to those of you who would like to participate! This week's challenge is Make it Manly - Father’s Day is June 19th, so make a masculine themed card, does not have to be specifically Father’s Day – just masculine.

I created a gift card holder using Gift Card Holder - Guy (I-924) and paired it up with Karen Foster Ties, Ties, Ties paper.  I color the ties in the stamped image with Copic markers and tried to match the ones on the patterned paper.  I added some Clear Viva Glass Effect to the red dots.  I stamped Tiny Happy Dad's Day (AA-869) in the upper right corner, right on the patterned paper.

Please be sure to head over to the Outlines blog to get the details for participating in the new challenge and also make sure you head over to each design team member's blog to check out their masculine creations!
