There is nothing like a good challenge – one of my regular stampers said that she did not like the Twitterpated DSP "at all" because it is too girly and she does not have daughters, she has sons and a husband.  She said that even I (said with a huge grin on her face as though I am of course, God's gift to paper crafting), could not take that paper and make a masculine card with it.  Challenge On!  And I think I did just that, I even took it a step further and did a coordinating envelope.  So let's break it down now:  (add music if you want):

Packed For Dad, masculine, card, twitterpatedFirst, I started with one of my initially least favorite stamps from the current mini catalog, the Packed For Dad.  (I actually did not care for any of these in that set, too much coloring, right?)  These are now some of my favorites!  You don't have to color all of the images in, just a select few.  So just randomly select an area, color it and punch it out.

*NOTE* What you do not see is that the Whisper White square that the entire stamped image is on is the only stamping of that image that I did.  In other words, stamp once, punch out one area, pop it up on a bigger circle of coordinating cardstock and there you go!

Second, stamp your sentiment, I used Loved Ones (wm: 125465, cm:  125467) on Whisper White with my Pear Pizzazz and Not Quite Navy Makers. 

Third, do your die cutting.

Fourth, layer with Twitterpated DSP! 

Instant Masculine Card using Twitterpated DSP, I love it!  I am being very prideful in saying that I love this card. 

Also, I used this same pattern of DSP for scrapbooking Easter with my little girl – this is truly a versatile pattern and color palette. 

Ok, Miss You-Know-Who-You-Are, does this work for you?  Is this a masculine enough card for your boys and hubby?  What do you think of the Twitterpated DSP now?
