Cheers to Masculine Cards!

Good day all. It is L.B. from Cool Beans by L.B. and today I am continuing my quest to bring masculine themed projects your way. Today I am sharing a card I made using a very masculine themed cartridge: Father's Day.
I cut this can shaped card using my Gypsy. I used the hide/contour button to remove all the inside cuts from two cans and welded them together (measurements below).  The welded card came out  great.
I added the "cheers" from Everyday Pop-up Cards to the cover and on the inside I used Birthday Bash and a stamp to finish it off.
I am finding this quest to be very enjoyable.  Hope I am helping inspire you in your projects for those great men in you life. Have a great day!
