He really is, and for so many reasons! My dad has great appreciation for very simple things, so I think this would suit him. He loves the outdoors, so I thought my Leaves Trio would work nicely. And, I love the sentiments in the Mainly Men Clear set–I use those SO much!!! Not just for guy cards, but any time I need a clean, straightforward look.
Got a new EK border punch a short time ago, and decided it needed a test run. But, I wanted to do sumpin' a wee bit different than just cutting the bottom edge of the card. So, I used it to create a "slit" to slip my focal layer through. Ohhhhhhhh, I LIKEY!!!
Another little detail, just to add a bit more kick and contrast to the design: a double layered reinforcer with an antique copper mini brad. I love copper–it always has a warmth to it that draws me in.
Hope your week was a good one, and that your weekend is even gooder. *wink*
