Dude Blog Hop

Welcome to the Amazing Journey Blog Hoppers Hop! This month’s theme is Dude. I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you arrived here from Kim's blog, you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

Isn't this the type of card design we are ALWAYS looking for? The most common request on boards is to see everyone's dude cards. I don't know why we have such a hard time coming up with something, but feminine cards are just easier to design, I guess :) When you do a guys card you have to push past the frilly design and the rhinestones and glitter and get down to the nitty gritty in your craft corner and get creative. Thankfully, there are many, many stamp designs out there now to design a card for the dude in your life, and if you need that something extra, splash some Journey Silks on that baby!! It's like throwing some dirt on it, only so much better.

The score lines for this 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card is 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".
Patterned paper is cut to 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" and 4" x 5 1/4".
Journey Circles Die Set is used to cut the circles.

I designed the front of the card first and then when I had the placement of the front large circle in place I put adhesive on the inside of the card circle back, then lined it up under front, then closed up the card so that the inside circle lined up directly under the front circle. Clear as mud? No? Throw some silks on it ;)

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head to Ruth's blog next.

Rub some dirt in it, it'll be

Love the way you use the circle on the front to hide the sentiment on the circle on the back.
