MFTeaser - #1 Dad

Welcome to day four of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!

I used the awesome new Masculine Graphic Tee stamps and Die-namics set for my card today. I don't know about you, but for me, masculine cards are not the easiest to create. Well MFT to the rescue with this set!!! The manly t-shirt and sentiments are perfect for so many occasions. I made a card for my dad, for father's day. My parents are coming to visit later this month and they'll be here on Father's Day, so I can't blame a late card on snail mail this year.  ;-)


I chose patterned papers from the Echo Park A Boy's Life paper pad and paired them with Sour Apple and Berrylicious card stocks. I combined two sentiments from the set, the "#1" and "DAD" to create this graphic grey t-shirt. I used the largest of the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the green circle and embossed it with the diamond plate embossing folder. The new Star STAX Die-namics were a natural accent for this manly card, along with some simple stitching and shiny silver brads.
