Daring Adventure ~ Mojo 242/HSS119

It's that time of year.  Graduation invitations are pouring in.   This card would be perfect for any grad, but especially for the young men you need to give a card to. 


The inspiration came from this week's fabulous sketch over on the Mojo Monday blog and the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.


Perfect timing for me.  :)  I'll be doing at least one more card for this challenge, and hopefully get it posted in time.

 
Isn't this a wonderful sketch?  I loved the detail of the jagged triangle along that middle strip. 


I don't have a punch like that, so I decided to make my own. Then I filmed a video so you can make it too. :)


In the video I showed you the two options to finish this card.  Which do you like better?  The timepiece or the hodgepodge hardware?  I'm torn.  I like them both. 


Here's a peek at the inside.  This could easily work as a birthday card or Father's Day card.  The Well Word Designer Series paper works nicely for any masculine card or scrapbook page you may want to create.





Now to make a few feminine graduation cards for all the young ladies we know who are graduating.  :)


Creative Blessings,
Heather North

You sure did hit the mark! Great masculine card. The stamp set, the dsp, the trinckets, and that layout all work perfectly together. Thanks for playing with us this week at HSS.
