YAY! - It is time for another fun challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity!!! Yay!!! This week our challenge is masculine. With Father's day right around the corner, it is the perfect time for this theme.

I made an accordion card using my new Elizabeth Craft Accordion dies. This is a fantistic die! So easy to do a really great card that looks like it took hours to make.

This is what my card looks like folded flat for mailing. I used a birthday stamp set by Autumn Leaves for the hats and sentiment. I also used 2 different SU punches for the hats.

Here is the card opened. 

My little guy is by our sponsor, Crafty Sentiments. I colored him and all of the images from the Autumn Leaves with Copics.

My red designer paper is Bazzill Basic's, Red Devil. The blue is Studio G.
