OSAT Blog Hop - Boys in The Hood June 2021 Masculine Themed Card with Hats Off Bundle

 Hi There!  I'm over with the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop Team today with a Masculine Hard using the Hats Off Bundle in the new Annual Catalog!  It's a super fun  theme and I've had such a blast playing with this fabulous new Hats Off Bundle!  

If you are starting at my blog, please make sure you hop all the way through for some fabulous inspiration!  If you started at another blog, thanks for continuing on!

Here's a look at my Gatefold Hats Off Father's Day Card.  

I loved the combination of the Woodgrain DSP and the Distressed Cap!

I LOVE this Hats Off Bundle!  For my card today I used a half sheet of Evening Evergreen Cardstock that measured 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", and scored the 8-1/2" side at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8".  I used my bone folder to burnish the score lines.  On each of the two sides I added a panel of 2-1/16" x 5-7/16" of Crumb Cake Cardstock and added a layer of the In Good Taste DSP in the distressed woodgrain pattern that measured 2" x 5-6/16".  I used the New 2021-2023 In Colors DSP in the Evening Evergreen plaid pattern to cut out the cap.  I also cut a hat out of Evening Evergreen and Crumb Cake Cardstock.  The bill of the Evening Evergreen cap was cut off right above the stitched line and adhered to the plaid cap.  The Crumb Cake cap was adhered to the back of the DSP cap to strengthen it.   The cap emblem was stamped in Evening Evergreen Ink onto Basic White Cardstock as was the You're The Best Label.  The sentiment label measured 2" x 3/4" and was matted with 2-1/8" x 7/8" strip of Evening Evergreen DSP and then added to the same size of Crumb Cake Cardstock to strengthen it as well.  Crumb Cake Baker's Twine was run around the left side of the label three times and tied in a knot in the front.  Prior to adhering both the label and the hat,  I used a small wire brush to distress the edges of the bill of the hat, the hat emblem and the Sentiment label.   

I love how the distressing added interest and texture to the card front!  I think it's my favorite part of this card!  Distressed caps are such an "In" thing right now!

Here's how I finished up the Inside...

The inside card panel of Basic White measured 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" and was matted on Crumb Cake Cardstock measured 4" x 5-1/4".  I used Inspired Thoughts stamp set for the fabulous sentiment .  This card is for my son-in-law for both his birthday and Father's Day so I love that this was a great sentiment and perfectly generic enough that I can write in what ever I want to go with it.

I also threw together a super easy and quick gift bag..

I had some plain white bags from the Dollar Store so I grabbed one and stamped some caps and emblems, as well as a few stars, on the bag with Crumb Cake Ink.  The tag was cut with the Tailor Made Tags Dies from Crumb Cake and Evening Evergreen cardstock and stamped with Evening Evergreen Ink.  I tied it on with some Crumb Cake  Baker's Twine.  It was certainly simple  but for Masculine gift bags sometimes simple is the best!
