A Good Man


Hello everyone! Welcome to the April 1st Our Daily Bread designs Blog Hop!

The Hop will run from 8am EDT April 1 until 8pm EDT. April 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Sun. April 3.

For this hop, there will be THREE Prizes of One Free Set (your choice), and
ONE GRAND PRIZE of THREE FREE SETS, YOUR CHOICE!

Here is what you need to do to be entered in the drawing:

Leave comments for each designer on each blog. Return to the ODBD Blog
and leave a comment, telling us you completed the hop and noting any blogs you were
unable to comment on. Also answer the question on the ODBD blog.

Here are my card details:
 

I decided to make a masculine card for our hop today!  You all know this is a challenge for me right?!!!  But I love this moose image from the Father's Day set so just had to try it out!  First, I embossed a piece of SU! designer paper with the Cuttlebug Herringbone folder and sponged it with Always Artichoke ink.  I stamped the moose twice so I could cut one out for layering.  Then I decided he needed to be standing in a field of flowers so added the flower soft!  Moose like flowers I am sure!  LOL!  To balance out the flowers on this manly card I added buttons.  I used my Grand Calibur to cut out the Spellbinders square and the new cool Ribbon Tag.  So what do you think?   So glad you joined us today and hope you love the new sets as much as we do! 

Now head on over to the blog of the very talented Connie!!!  Enjoy the hop!!!

  4. I love the ribbon tag and I'm so glad to see what the Herringbone folder pattern looks like. I've seen the folder but never seen it used, so I didn't really know what the result would look like.

    In my opinion, you can make wonderful masculine cards! This is one of them! I love the image of the moose peering out of the foliage. The flower soft was so creative to have used it on a masculine card! It worked great! I love the herringbone frame and the Scripture you chose is wonderful. And, you were right, of course...the buttons are a fabulous embellishment for this masculine card. I think it is great! Thank you for sharing!
