Hammer On

It's all about being manly at the
Darlene has put together this super cool and
'guy' sort of tile board for us to get inspired with!


Well, as you have heard me mention a million times before
I STRUGGLE with man cards.....
but I have been getting better at them I think....
and this card is no exception!


But heck, how can you go wrong when you have a super cute
cut file from The Cutting Cafe to use??
This cute hammer shaped card is from the 
It has 2 styles each of a hammer, wrench and saw!

I let my Cricut Explore do most of the work.
OMGoodness, how I love that machine,
except it is a whole lot smarter then I am...LOL!


So, anywho, I cut the hammer base from kraft card stock.
The top layer was cut from a silver metallic card stock
and the bottom from a wood grain paper I have had forever!
I inked the edges of the hammer with
TH distress ink 'gathered twigs'.


The sentiment, well it is one of many from the same cut file set!
I added 3 little silver brads for 'nail' heads.

Isn't it just the cutest??
(pat myself on the back..lol)!!
Remember the song
"If I had a hammer,
I'd hammer in the mornings"....on and on...
well I can't get it out of my head now...
lol...hope you can!

So,if you really want to be inspired and get some great
'guy' card ideas...head on over to the

I hardly know where to start, Diane. This is just about the cutest thing ever for a guy card! I mean, if you have to make a guy card it might as well be fun, right? And this looks like tons of fun! Any guy would love this. Seriously. The wood grain paper is perfect and, of course, it had to have nails to go with it. I LOVE it!

When I see a card like this I want to buy a cutting machine. Alas no room at the inn to set one up. This is such a fun card and great sentiment.
