Inspired - AAA Cards

I've got a Dozen Thoughts running through my head 
because I've been inspired by AAA Cards this week!

One of those thoughts is that you had Better Get Better - can you tell?  
Lots of guys need get well cards, too.  And since I know a 
few fellows who are recouping, I made a couple cards
 for them super quick with this fantastic CASE from AAA Cards Challenge.

Here's my inspiration from the wonderful Angela Maine:

Love the inspiration - just had to make it "manly" - 
or at least "manlier" - Ha!

Lots of texture in there, too with the embossed dots. 
 I used the brayer to ink up an embossing folder and then ran
 it through my Big Shot.  It's a very touchable card.  Guys like that.

Hope you have a great day - thanks so much for stopping by.  
And get a CASE card posted over at the AAA Cards, ok?  
Can't wait to see what you've got.

Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!

  1. It's so great to see your card Julia, and you are right about guys needing cards too! Thank you for your wonderful case, and I hope all is well.

  2. It is a manly card, the die cut is very interesting and modern too. So glad things are improving for your fella. I giggled when I read the sentiment. My husband had many illness in the last two years...I could hear in my head YOU "better get better"! Bear hugs.

  3. Fabulous masculine, inspired card~

  4. Great card Julia! I'm always on the lookout for masculine cards so love this.
