Glitz Design June Blog Challenge


Happy Tuesday dear friends!!!  I can’t believe it’s June and time for another Glitz Design Blog Challenge:

Masculine cards are always a challenge for me as I love to embellish my cards with ribbon, flowers, lace and everything that is pretty!!  It’s a good thing Glitz Design’s Happy Travels line is perfect for all those manly creations that need to be made!!!   The colors are absolutely wonderful and the stamps couldn’t be more perfect! 

In the first card I have for you today, I used a Happy Travels Peek a Boo as the base for my card:

I made an embellishment cluster emphasizing the fact that dad is #1.  I layered a Happy Travels "1" sticker on top of a French Kiss Layered Sticker to add some depth to the card.  I also cut off the end of an Epoxy Word Sticker to let dad know that he is loved.

Supplies Used:
Glitz Design Happy Travels Paper:  Stripe and Bicycle
Glitz Design Happy Travels Stamps
Other Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, Button, Button Twine, and Ribbon;
Papertrey Ink Men of Life Stamps; Brad from my stash

The second card was inspired by the vintage sailboat in the Happy Travels Stamp Set.  I stamped the boat onto my card base then I stamped it once again on Rustic Cream cardstock.  I cut out the boat from the cream cardstock and inked the edges. 
I added some twine to the boat to give the card some visual interest.  I also hand-cut some banners from the patterned paper and gently curled the ends.
I embellished the card with some additional stamped images from the Happy Travels stamp set, some ribbon and a button.  A very simple, yet manly card!
