Keep it casual, man!

If the title of my post sounds a little old school, it's just the theme of this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: making a masculine card with patterned paper.


If you've been following my blog for awhile, and have a super-amazing memory, these patterned papers will look like a re-run.  They're the scraps that are left from my Father's day projects last year :)

I spent some time organizing my scraps and decided it was time to use up the last of this pack (such a crafty hoarder!)

After adhering the strips to a white mat (for more stability), I grabbed a "tag sale 5" die cut (PTI), folded the top over, and was left with the perfect fish-tailed banner.  I die-cut the letters and black-embossed the folded glasses image (from Lawn Fawn).

The glasses were propped up with foam dots, as was the patterned paper mat, to give some extra dimension to the card.

I'm also entering this into the current lawnscaping challenge: embossing.

Thanks for peeking!
