JustRite Friday Challene #095: Window of Opportunity

As I went to put away things on my table today, I decided to throw together a quick little masculine card and chose to make it  a window card that fits JustRite's Friday Challenge that ends tomorrow, making it ahead for Father's Day.
(View shot with window partially open; see next photo!)
This very simple card was created using Recollections Kraft Card Stock and JustRite's Premium Labels clear stamps -- a perfect combination for those 'pesky' masculine cards!
The coordinating dies (Vintage Label & Banner Dies) make this so quick and easy -- cut a window and stamp your chosen stamp inside. I then stamped a different round stamp from the set, cut with a Standard Circles Large #2 die, popping it with foam tape atop the original sentiment (which said 'friend' instead of 'Dad'). Next, took a small scrap of corrugated cardboard, sponged on Black Soot Distress Ink and attached to lower edge of card; stamped my sentiment and die cut with a banner die from same custom die set.
(Inside view -- LOVE that guy stamp!)
Finishing touches: colored 4 tiny stars with a Copic, popped those in place, added a black hemp cord (braided for more 'ruggedness'), popped on a button, tied a knot in the end and done. Ready to give way ahead of Father's Day!

Hmmm, maybe I'll make a coordinating envelope too?!  :*~)

Kraft works great for any card and this one proves that. Very well done for a "Quick" card :).

Those masculine cards can be so "pesky". You did a fantastic job on this. I like how you use the corrugate cardboard. Your really thought outside of the box... Sorry, I had to say it.

oh,the "man" card! We do have to make them from time to time. This one is very handsome! I'm a kraft freak too. I like the window you made with the vintage label die!

Great card - I find it so difficult to create masculine cards. I like the black hemp cord and button too :-) Thanks for the inspiration!
