A Masculine Card

Hello, everyone!
I'm back with a card which is quite different from my usual style.  I made a masculine card after a long time & really enjoyed the creative process. Here's a look at my card :

This card was rather easy to put together and that might sound a bit weird as masculine cards are always difficult to make, but the Papericious Gentleman Paper Pack & Mudra DAD set are just the perfect match to make such cards :)

 To create this card, I first took an A2 red colored card base and die-cut a frame using the Argyle pattern Paper from the Gentleman Pack which was slightly smaller than my base. Then, I took another paper from the same collection and again die-cut a frame smaller than my previous card front and foam mounted it for dimension.
The white card panel was also die-cut using a Stitched Rectangles die & I have stamped the moustache, the glasses, the bow-tie and the sentiment from the Mudra Dad set.
For the hat, I have done paper-piecing on the band of it using a pattern paper from the Papericious - The Gentleman pack. Finally added some googly eyes to create some fun interest to my card and stamped the sentiment on a white banner which was slightly distressed using Hickory Smoke Distress ink.

Linked this up in the Star Stampz - Add a sentiment, Addicted to Stamps and More- Anything Goes, Word Art Wednesdays- Anything Goes, Stampin' Royalty- Anything Goes and Crafty Hazelnuts- Anything Goes with Patterned paper.

I hope you like this card of mine. As I mentioned earlier, it's quite different from my usual style, so it was really nice to create one after a long time :) I would love to read your comment/suggestions regarding it.

Have a nice day everyone.
