Masculine Argyle Birthday

Over at Seize The Birthday this week the "Toppings" challenge is "Nothing But Neutrals"

I thought that sounded like the palette for the perfect masculine card.

For some reason Argyle popped into my head, so I went about trying to figure out how I wanted that to happen on my card.

I found this distressed looking argyle cut file at the Silhouette Studio store. It kind of reminded me of something Tim Holtz might do. It is called destroyed argyle and is Design ID #12049.

I think it looks perfect in black and white on the kraft card stock.

Supplies used:  card stock - kraft, black, white; Silhouette Studio cut file; Sentiment by Lil Inker; ink by Memento; staples - Making Memories.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Teacher Gift - Insulated Water Tumbler

I wanted to share with you a teacher gift I created for my grandson's teacher.

I purchased a case of colored tumblers from Amazon. Here is the link. The colors are fabulous, I was happy with the quality and for just a little over $3 a piece, they make an inexpensive little gift.

I put some tissue paper in so the photo would turn out better. My daughter is going to fill it with some little gifts.

I used three different fonts to create the wording in my Silhouette program.
I used Ariel Black,  LD Letter Jacket and SW Par-tay Thyme.

The school colors are blue and white and the mascot is a mountain lion so they put a paw print on everything.

I used Design ID #75727 for the paw print  and Design ID #32640 for the superman shield, both from the Silhouette store.

Supplies used: Insulated Tumbler Cups - Amazon; Vinyl -; Silhouette Studio cut files
