CardMaker Blog Team Hop

Hi there!

Today is blog hop day for the CardMaker Magazine Blog Team. Our theme for today 'He's all that' - we are sharing masculine cards! Perfect timing, too, with the upcoming Father's Day weekend.

Here is the card that I made, using the new Fish More set from Wplus9 (which totally fills a niche for me - my die-hard fisherman brother will be getting cards with this set here on out!)

Eek! I just love it! I inset my die cut shapes back into the cardstock they were cut from, a technique I shared on the CardMaker blog last week (certainly not thought up by me, but I just love the look!).

I die cut a banner shape and stamped it repeatedly with the word 'Dad'. Then I added the sentiment across the bottom, aren't the punny sentiments great?

I'm so glad you've stopped by today, please make sure you hop on over to visit the other Blog Team members! I can't wait to check out what these outstanding ladies have come up with!

Anya Schrier - You are here!

Have a great day!
