{Kraftin' Kimmie) Make it Masculine

Hi there! This weeks challenge at KKS is to make a masculine card! I have lots of boys in my life (no, I am not that kinda girl;)..I have a family full of guys! Out of 13 cousins on my maternal side, only 2 of us are girls! And on my dad's side, 3 girls out of 11! I know. Crazy!
I used the sweetest little guy that Kraftin' Kimmie has to offer....little Willard! Isn't he precious! Lord, he hates the cold!!! Maybe it's cuz his mama dresses him in this ridiculous snowsuit and sends him off to school everyday to get pummelled....I don't know!

  Since he just looks so cold, I thought I would make a little 'Brrr' banner! I used MFT's banner die, a TCP alphabet, and attached the triangles with SU cord brads. Some walmart brown hemp twine runs to the back of the cardfront. The little snowflake is also a MFT die and is topped with an SU cord button and more twine.  The dp (SU) panels are all various widths and are matted with chocolate chip CS and machine stitched with matching brown thread.

I added some distressed stickles to his hat fur and topped with some chunky white SU glitter (actually to cover up the rancid liquid applique- anyone's ever go 'bad'?? Mine would NOT fluff up with the heat gun, even after leaving it the full night to dry....)

For the inside, I kept the panel theme going, adding a few more snowflakes and stitching, and die cut the sentiment panels from another MFT dienamic. The sentiment is from the new Moonlight Whispers Eva, but I thought that it totally suited this freezer-burnt little fella;)

We would love to see what masculine creations you can come up with, so link your card to the Krafty Blog for your chance to win some new KKS rubber!
