Guest Designing Today!

Hi everyone!  

Today is an exciting day!
I'm so happy to be back with the talented folks at Great Impressions as a guest designer!

Great Impressions was one of the very first stamps I purchased when I began stamping, in 2000.  It still makes me smile to use one of their products, and I've missed being a team member!  If you have time, drop by the Great Impressions Blog, and leave me some love there...
maybe they will ask me to join them again sometime!

The amazing Ruza asked me to create something 'For Him'.
I didn't have too many masculine stamps, so here's what I decided to do... 

A Double Z-Fold (Joy?) Card seemed like a fun manly-fold. 


 Here is the card opened partially...

Here is the card opened fully...

And this little view shows the card from the end - double z's, right???

I used these Great Impressions Stamps:


This will go to a man at church who loves to fish and golf!

Thanks for dropping by today!

What a fun and wonderful masculine designed card. I love the z-fold idea too. And, of course, the fishing theme would be great for a lot of the men in my family. Congrats on being the guest designer too!

This is a perfect masculine card - from the design, to the colors, to the images and sentiments used. You nailed it, Patti!
