FabScraps Gentleman's Club Card

FabScraps - Gentleman's Club Collection
FabScraps new Gentleman's Club collection has beautiful, strong and striking graphics.  I decided to share these great graphics in the form of a card.  FabScraps also has wonderful chipboard pieces that compliment their collections. 

I have directions for this card down at the end of my post.  It's a quick super easy and "do-able" masculine card for dad.   Cards do not always need to be cluttered with embellishments and paint splatters and flowers.  Sometimes simple and quick is all you need for a classic looking card.  More is not always better.

Come visit FabScraps at their new blog home.   You can also visit them on FaceBook here.
