Cupcake Craft #44


It's Monday and that means it's cupcake craft day!!! This week it was Jeanette's turn to set the challenge. Here's the challenge......
As it's getting close to Fathers Day I thought a Fathers Day card would be appropriate, but there's a slight twist in that it has to be more than a card. You can interpret that any way you want to. If it's not Fathers Day in your neck of the woods then a card for a Man (any man) will do. Have fun and I can't wait to see your creations.

Well this one combines the two hardest challenges for me...something for a man AND not a card! So here's what I did. I made a one sheet wonder box (my favorite box) using kraft card stock. I plan on filling this with some chocolates and a gift card to the butcher for our first dinner on our new grill. I used some K&Company manly papers along with collage alphabet(retired) from SU. Now, I don't have too many manly stamps and my husband really isn't into tools(the man stamps I have) so I decided to go with beer!!!! This one's from cheers to you from SU. And while I don't know if Charisma cardz had beer in mind as "the something yummy" when they set their challenge, I think beer certainly is yummy, so I'll enter this little box there as well:)

Be sure to check out some great Father's Day ideas from the rest of the DT:)

Thanks for stoppin' by!
