Sensational Masculine Saturday at SCH

Hello !
It is the weekend! Yea!!!

Today at Sugar Creek Hollow the challenge is Masculine cards. With Fathers day coming soon, we thought it would be a great time to get started. One lucky winner will get a badge and an image of our choice.
  I  have a special card for you today. 
 The above picture is the card open, I learned about this type of fold called Box Arm fold from my dear friend Emma over at Lady and the Stamp. She even gives you the tutorial for free! Your the best Emma! So stop on over to her blog to check out her work and pick up the tutorial. Be sure to tell her I sent you!
Here is a view of the card closed. So it fits into a regular card envelope.
And one more with a view from the top. 

I used quite a few sets  from SU to make the collage, and lots of distressing to make it feel a bit older. My Paper combo is Old Olive and Night of Navy.  When I brought this card into work, I even got a few orders for this. Very happy about that.
Be sure to come on over to SCH and show us your vintage or shabby Masculine cards. I cant wait to see what you make. 
The rest of the DT will knock you socks off too, so stop by to see what  they have done and get some more inspiration. 

Challenges:
Our Craft Lounge #66- Twine
Stampin' Royalty #72- Birds

This is fabulous and I didn't realize it was a fancy fold when I first saw it. How clever. Love the papers and all the wonderful masculine images.
Hugs!
