Other Samples using He’s The Man Suite .
I loved how simple it was to pop out the elements from He’s The Man Specialty Designer Series Paper to make these quick and WOW cards. There’s BBQs, camping, meat cuts and more in the DSP… great for our blokes cooking on the grill. In the card above, I’ve stamped the greeting in Cajun Craze ink on Crushed Curry cardstock.
