Father’s Day Gift

With Father's Day approaching, there are many fun challenges out there to make masculine cards! I created this one for Shelli Gardner's Father's Day challenge over at So Shelli and for the masculine card making challenge over at Late Night Stampers Yahoo Group.

This is the first time I created this project with the Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is the perfect guy and gal paper all in one. Love that it has flowers, but the stripes are perfectly suited for a masculine card! It is just a little bit thicker than the textured cardstock that I first used to create this project, and it was just wonderful to work with. I just love this project and it is a perfect gift for men or women. The photo above is shown with a matching Father's Day card.

Inside this oversized matchbook you'll find three full size cards that contain a monogram and matching envelopes (Shown outside). This is one of those projects that you absolutely have to use Stampin' UP!'s quality envelopes!
When you need a card, just tear it off the perforated strip and take an envelope from the back. Close up the matchbook and it is ready for storage untill you need another one! If you make more than one, the monogram showing through the front is a great way to show what is on each card. So fun!
