Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #69


Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a fabulous day!
It's challenge #69 at the Die Cuttin' Divas blog. This time it's a theme challenge-Man Card(In Honor of Father's Day).
Make sure you head on over to the Die Cuttin' Divas blog to check out what the other ladies on the team have created. Then make your own Man Card and link up for your chance to win a great prize. Remember, you MUST use a die cut on your card!

This is the card I made for my husband this year for Father's Day!
We have been doing home renovations, so I thought my hubbie would get a kick out of this.
Drill cut from the Handy Man cricut cartridge at 3 1/2 inches
Patterned paper- Echo Park-This and That
Outside sentiment- Pink by Design-Tool Time
Inside sentiments-Pink by Design-Our Fathers
Buttons from stash
Ribbon-Papertrey Ink 
Vintage Photo Distress Ink on patterned paper edges
I had to cut the silver part for the drill about 6 times. It would tear every time. I was so mad at it. I used different papers, different settings. Nothing was working. I finally cut one that was half decent to use. I actually had to use the reverse of the cut because the front was messed as it was white core and peeled away from the silver. Very annoying!!! Anyway, I got one. Yeah!!
This is the cutest sentiment. 
I used the scraps of the 6 x 6 to decorate the inside of the card.
This stamp originally said 'Happy 1st Fathers Day" and you know me, I just cut it up to make it fit my needs. LOL! Don't be afraid to cut up your stamps. They still work just fine.
I am entering this into some challenges: Celebrate the Occasion-Father's Day; Crafty Sentiments-Father's Day; LEJ Designs-Daddy Dearest; Cards for Men-Father's Day; Heart 2 Heart-Father's Day; Make My Monday-Father's Day; My Craft Spot-King of the Grill; Dream Valley-For that Special Guy; Platypus Creek-For the Boys; Sentimental Sundays-For that Special Guy; The Crafty Pad-Let's Hear it for the Boys; The Secret Crafter-Father's Day; ATC's and Cards with Attitude-Father's Day; Card Makin' Mamas-Father's Day; JellyPark-Boy Crazy; Phindy's Place-Father's Day; Simply Create Too-Father's Day; Cardz TV-I'm So Glad, Your My Dad!
