Tutorial Tuesday: Masculine Father's Day Card

Tutorial Tuesday:
Masculine Father's Day Card
Thanks to my bestie Claire I've just recently caught the card making addiction! But seem struggle with making masculine cards. I mean c'mon you can't use ribbon, flowers, anything that glitters...umm hello...what are you left with? But I needed to make a Father's Day card and thought, "Ok I CAN do this!" So as I sat there staring at my craft desk I noticed a piece of sand paper and had an "aha" moment!

Luckily I had made my Dad {This} Custom Tile/Vinyl Checkerboard this year which resulted in me buying some "boy" scrapbook paper! (I used the same paper from the checker pieces to tie it all together.) I just decided on a basic layout, trimmed with my paper cutter and stamped the top sheet over and over with a word stamp. Then I grabbed my sand paper! I rounded the paper over so I could sand two sides at once and went nuts! No rhyme or reason, just random sanding. Then I stuck it all together and embellished with my most masculine matching embellishment! I just love how it turned out! 
Have you created an awesome masculine card?
