This week the challenge at Heart2Heart is "boys will be boys". One of the keys for me to making a guy card is to focus on texture and simplicity. For this card, I pulled out some of our brand new Fundamental papers and had some textural fun!
I used the woodgrain paper from Rustic Home Fundamentals for the mountains as well as a small strip of the embossed woodgrain paper. I layered that with some of our All About the Gold Fundamentals (they are acetate overlays with embossed gold textures) for an extra texture boost.
The mountain is cut from our brand new Flower Market cartridge - the alphabet matched our Artristry cartridge so I created a custom cut on some Whimsy Fundamentals papers to create a longer sentiment. I love the trendy XXX is calling and I must go sayings that are popping up everywhere! I used a bit of .01 journaling pen to pop the letters on this.

This card is dedicated to my son who just finished his Freshman college registration and is now on a 6 day backpacking adventure with a group of incoming freshman. I'm sure he'll come home exhausted, dirty, stinky and happy as can be! This is his first big college adventure and I'm hoping his years at Western will be filled with many, many more!
Stay crafty my friends,
