Hey Handsome - Pink and Main & Xyron Blog Hop

Hey, Crafty Friends!
I have exciting news. 
Pink and Main and Xyron will be partnering up and holding a week-long blog hop!! 
 We still have tons more creative projects to show you using Pink and Main products along with Xyron adhesives!

Since this is a hop, you know we have to have a little blog hop candy.
Pink and Main and Xyron are each giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to Pink and Main and a Xyron Mega Runner. Additional details for the giveaway will be posted down below.

Today, I wanted to create a fun card for the cool little dude in your life because let's face it, looking good is hard work!

Supplies Used

Too Cool (Pink and Main)

Directional Border Dies (Pink and Main)

Take Flight (Pink and Main)
Take Flight 2 (Pink and Main)
Be Brave (Pink and Main)
Mega Runner (Xyron) 
140 lb Mixed Media Paper
Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Tim Holtz Distress Markers (Ranger)
Acrylic Block
Big Shot Machine (Sizzix)

To build my card, I used the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies set from the Chevron paper. I cut another rectangle from the stars paper and trimmed it to 1 1/2" portion. Then cut a 1/2" strip from the gray striped paper.

I layered the pieces together using my Xyron Mega Runner.
Then die cut 2 smaller rectangles and mounted them slightly off of one another.

I love these fun border Directional Border Dies that I thought looked great in the narrow strip. Cutting it out in that bold red paper really makes it pop against the gray.
I used the bear with the backpack image to stamp onto mixed media paper. I colored the little guy, then hand cut him out, and mounted onto the card front using foam adhesive.

Then finally, stamped my sentiment using black ink.

And here is my finished card...

What little guy wouldn't want a card as cool as this?

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial!
