One of my favorite stamps from Stampin' Up!'s 2016 Occasions Catalog is Bear Hugs. I used it to make this masculine birthday or Father's Day card.  The inside is a fancy fold called a book card.

Love You to the Moon – I Really Do!

Don't you just love Stampin' Up!'s Love You to the Moon (#133143 for clear mount, #133140 for wood mount) stamp set?  It can be used for any occasion such as Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Miss You, Thinking of You, well you get it, almost any occasion.  Today's card could be used for the man in your life or a child (is their a connection here???). I used Crumb Cake, Night of Naavy, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock. I used Stampin' Write markers to color the stamp, huff and stamp on the white card layer.
