WHAT I LOVE!  Isn’t the Trusty Tools Designer Series Paper (DSP) perfect for a masculine card for dad or Father’s Day?   This card was created for my husband Scott’s birthday last week. Colors in the Trusty Tools DSP collection include Basic Black, Copper Clay, Crushed Curry, Gray Granite, Lost Lagoon and Poppy Parade. The variety of patterns are certainly unisex and easily mixed and matched. I used FOUR patterns including the envelope flap on this ONE project. Fun!
