Holy Hannah! That was a ton of cards. Love the inspiration for all manly ages and some of you ladies have mad coloring skills. Rub some off on me please. I need the help-lol

My Manly Monday card is a fun one with new to me stamps and die by Papertrey Ink. I started my card by distressing the background paper by Tim Holtz with an X-acto knife. It sure isn't the safest way to distress but it was the closest thing to me at the time. I crinkled the paper up in my hand and then smoothed it back out. I stamped and die cut the saw out of a very light gray cardstock and then I used pinking shears to make the blades of the saw. If you off set your die cut to include more of an edge on the down side then you have a nice little edge to make the saw sharp. I love this sentiment and have heard my husband use it before. This will make a perfect birthday card for one of his four brothers or nephews. {Now if I could just get them in the mail before their actual birthday, I'd be a happy camper}

I used the same gray cardstock for behind the saw which in hindsight I should have used a different color. Oh well. The edges are inked with Stampin Up grey ink. The kind of graph paper is by DCWV and the green is by Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking.

Challenges: Anything goes It's raining men Anything goes Patty's or use green Punches or dies Anything goes use ribbon
