The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Well here we are at MID WEEK again and that means time for another fun challenge at 
Today's challenge is:

(Create a Masculine card or project.)

and we are sponsored today by 
Did you know that Boni is one of the Founding Sisters at The Sisterhood~!!

Today I'm using one of Boni's awesome DUDE images called Under Carriage Craig.  My SIL is a mechanic and is always available if I have car trouble so I thought this would be an appropriate card to send him.
I've used Prisma Pencils and Gamsol for the coloring on the car and Prismacolor Markers to color Craig.  A little tag with a Hero Arts sentiment, a touch of ribbon and Viola!  Oh yea ... needed a few brushed brass brads too ... kind of resembles those 'rivet' thingies!  LOL!

Here are a couple other masculine cards I had created a while back but have never shared on my blog.

 This card was created using DCWV design paper and K&Co epoxy stickers.  The fancy fold is called "Z-Fold" and I will be back another day with a tutorial on making this style of card. 

Now this was a REALLY QUICK put together creation.  It's an A-6 Gate Fold card which is extremely easy to make.  The base card stock is cut 6 1/4" x 9" and scored (normally at 4 1/2) but for the gate fold I've scored from each end at 2 1/4".  My GONE FISHING digi is from LEJ Designs and the fish stickers are by TPC Studio.

A few qualifying challenges:
Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge - Extra Fold or Pleats (cards #2 & #3)
Top Tip Tuesday - One for the Men

We hope you'll come join in the fun and if you need inspiration ... be sure to pop on over to The Sisterhood and check out what my Sistahs have created!

Love your male themed cards, I always find them difficult to so because when should you stop adding embellishments, but you've pulled it off!
