Dad's day

Good bright sunny (but cold) day bloggers! I've been working on a manly card for last weeks Wacky Wednesday challenge over at More than Favors. Everyone says man cards are much harder but I didn't really believe them.....that is until I had to try one myself! My problem is trying to keep it plain and simple. I think I finally accomplished it though. Take a look :)

The card is a 5x5 and the base cut is from Gypsy Wanderings. I just welded the 2 shapes together with my gypsy. The nut is from Indie Art and is cut at 4 inches. I did some layering and doodling. I unfortunately have no idea where the dad letters are from. I just found those in my stash I'm sure from years ago.

I didn't realize it but I only used 2 cartridges and they were 2 of the free ones I got when I registered my gypsy. So to everyone out there that thinks you need tons and tons of cartridges, you really don't!
