June 2014 Diva Dare - Day 11

Hey everyone! Chaitali here with day 11 of this month's Diva Dare! This month it's all about the men!

 This month we're daring you to create a stamped card or project with a masculine theme. 

Here is my card!

The men in my life (my husband, my dad) appreciate bright and cheery cards so even with masculine cards, I try and keep the overall look of the card light and bright.
For this one I found this excellent pin on Pinterest and CASEd the layout but added my own touch. For the 4 small panels on the card front I use Jennifer McGuire's emboss-and-ink technique.
The sentiment is from Verve Wonderful Marvelous set but I constructed it by selectively inking parts of 2 different stamps in the set. On my blog today, I have a tutorial for 2 different techniques to selectively ink a stamp.

Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our A Man's World dare and link up your card to be eligible to win.  Entries must be masculine in theme, posted 6/6 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 6/25/14.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

Win a Verve set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's A Man's World Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is June 25, 2014.
