June 2014 Diva Dare-Day 3

A Man's World - June Diva Dare

Welcome to June's Diva Dare!  It's Charmaine here with Day 3 of our June Dare, which is entitled A Man's World.  This month we're daring you to create a stamped card or project with a masculine theme.


Masculine cards don't always come easy to me since I love pretty ribbon and bling.  It's easier for me to create a masculine card with no embellishments because then I'm not tempted with those girly embellishments!  ;)  For my card I used the  Wonderful Marvelous set along with papers from the Down By the Shore Collection from Fancy Pants Designs.


I used a polka dot embossing folder to counter the stripes in the paper.  I also used a few Verve dies for my card:  Starry Die the Flag It Die Set and the Award Banner Trim Die.  Instead of ribbon, I used some hemp cording to make it a little more manly!  :)   



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.

Winners will be announced on June 26, 2014.

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -
