The Noble Deer stamp set from Stampin' Up! is such a great set for a guy card! I am using this as a birthday card, but this would make a great Father's Day card too! The layout for this card is from Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #172 (SC172).
All products are from Stampin' Up! except for the embossing folders for the Cuttlebug from Provo Craft! I used chocolate chip, whisper white, blue bayou, not quite navy, wild wasabi, and soft sky card stock and layered accordingly. I dry embossed the blue bayou with D'vine Swirls and not quite navy with Birds and Swirls. Ok...so the embossing folders are really kind of girly, but they work with this card. My husband thought so. Just look!!! Then I also used the my mat pack and paper piercing tool on the wild wasabi strip. I used black Stazon, water color pencils, and the blender pen for the main image. I attached both the strip and the main image with dimensionals to the base of the card. And there you go. This was a fun card to make!
Thanks so much for looking and enjoy!!!
