Just For Him Challenge at The Kraft Journal

For this week's "Just For Him" challenge at The Kraft Journal, it's the perfect time to work on those "Father's Day" Day cards, but I took the opportunity to work on a card to thank one of our baseball coaches. We just want to see your masculine cards either using Kraft cardstock or products from The Kraft Outlet
I started with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and matted a variety of papers to the kraft base. I added some Red Baker's Twine where the pieces met for some visual interest and added texture.  Using the Cricut's Sport's Mania cartridge, I cut two baseball bats from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and crossed them in the center of the card. I created a ribbon from stamps and dies from PTI's First Place Set and added that to the center. 

Lastly I die-cut the word Coach using my Big Shot from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and added to the bottom of the card. 

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Just for Him creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also entering this into Darnell's NBUS challenge. (All the PTI Products are new never used)

What a beautiful card design, Tammy! I absolutely adore the crossed baseball bats, and that blue ribbon is just perfect, too. Great papers and colors. The patriotic color scheme is so fitting for America's favorite past time. :) Love how you separated the paper panels with the baker's twine!
