Manly Monday with My Creative Time

Hello and welcome back! Yay, it's Monday...said no one ever!  How about we kick off the week with a masculine card?

I struggle with masculine cards but luckily MCT has stamps and dies for everyone and every occasion!  I firmly believe that everyone should have at least one alphabet die set in their stash.  They are super useful and versatile. From creating your own sentiments, easily personalizing a project or creating interesting backgrounds, they are a must!

I used the Lowercase Fun Dies on my project today.  I love the clean and simple typewriter font of these dies.

I used kraft cardstock today but to give the letters a little something extra, I used the Grainy Wood Background Stamp before die cutting.  Gives a more "manly feel", doesn't it :)?  I also cut 3 each of the letters to give a lot of dimension.

The cute little fox, leaves and sentiment come from the Fall Friends Stamp and Die set. I added the sentiment onto the smallest of the Stitched Decorative Banner Dies in an ink that kind of matched the cardstock.  

Because I had die cut many layers and stacked them together, no foam adhesive was necessary.  I glued everything to the second largest die in the Scalloped Stitched Rectangular Die Set which I embossed using an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers.

A few matte brown enamel dots finish the card!!

Thank you popping in today, I really appreciate it!!  I hope you enjoyed my cute masculine card :)

Until next time...stay crafty!
