Father's Day Card





I admit it... Masculine cards are tough for me! In fact, I struggle with them tremendously. I always want to add more, but am never sure what to add and how much of it throw on there. In this case, I played around with adding actual watch parts, clock hands, rivets, watch faces... all kinds of things, but nothing really worked. I ended up just leaving it very basic and simple. The clock paper is adorned with lots of sparkle and gloss, and the stamped image is imbossed in brass. I got this image in the dollar bin - it's from Studio G (Hampton Arts). The papers are DCWV, shape is cut with my Cricut. I'm not in love with it... Any suggestions?

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Saturday Challenge - #138 - A male card

One Stop Craft Challenge - #135 - Father's Day card

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C91 - Masculine card
