SIP Challenge #102 Masculine Card Challenge

Hello and Happy Tuesday!   How's your week going so far?  We've had lots of rain over the weekend but at least it has cooled it off just a bit.  On Saturday, my hubby and I went to Knoxville to watch my sweet granddaughter Taylor play softball!  She is only 7 and is really doing so well.  It fun to watch how much she's progressed just over the last couple of years.  

Well since today is Tuesday, it's time for another SIP Challenge!   Today is all about Masculine Cards!  With Father's Day coming up, this should be a popular challenge! 

First of all if you know me at all, you know that I LOVE masculine cards.  I can't seem to think masculine without the tried and true, now retired sets by Stampin' Up! .... Traveler and World Map.  They are definitely two of my all time favorite stamps sets and I will never let them go! lol

I was able to purchase the coordinating dies for Traveler from Dies by Dave a while back.  I am so glad I did.  I have fussy cut this train so many times and it sure is wonderful to have the die!   For this fun card I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of SU Basic Black cardstock scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  I added a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" corrugated cardstock from my stash with fast fuse.  I slanted it a bit to the left side.  My top layer is a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of #80 Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock.  I stamped the world map stamp with Sahara Sand SU Ink.  I used some SU Crumb Cake Ink to ink the edges.  I stamped the train with FSJ Black Licorice Ink and the suitcase with SU Soft Suede Ink.  I used the dies from Dies by Dave to cut the images out and popped them up with 3M Foam Tape.  I stamped the "Im here for you" sentiment from the SU You've Got This stamp set with FSJ Black Licorice Ink.  I added some FSJ Natural Twine and then added this layer scued to the right with Fast Fuse.  I used the edge of my scissors to add a bit of curl to my twine to finish this one off.  Simple card but super cute I think!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
