Guy Greetings

Hi All,
I know I just shared a post with a Mother's Day gift set and that Father's day is over a month away but I just love how this gift set came out so I wanted to share it with all of you.  I know that the bag is retiring as of May 31st but as of today it is still available. If it sells out before you see this post I have a solution for that you can use the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die set and crumb cake cardstock to make a bag that will look a whole lot like this one. I cut this bag down so now it is just big enough to hold a Hersey's chocolate candy bar but it doesn't have to be that big if you just want to put a gift card in it. I used Stampin' Up's  Guy Greetings stamps for my stamp set. I love this set as it has many different titles to go with the world's greatest sentiment plus it also has a Happy Birthday greeting as well as the one I chose for this set. I used crumb cake, early espresso and very vanilla for the cardstock. I used early espresso ink for all the images.  I used the stitched framelits oval and circle dies. I used the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder, That's a long name for a unique embossing folder which is a new at Stampin' Up. It gives paper a cool 3D effect, I wanted it to add texture to the early espresso on the card. I distressed all the edges lightly with early espresso. I used the triple banner punch for the ends of the sentiment banner and to finish off the card I chose use 2 Island Indigo enamel shapes to add just a touch of color. I think it turned out great and I think most guys with love to receive this gift set.
