I couldn't help myself...just had to go there with a Lumberjack card using the Handsomely Suited Bundle. Again, this was one of the cards I featured at my DOstamperSTARS virtual customer event in January. To say the least...it was a hit!
Now - at first look, the card may seem complicated. But after I lay it out for you, you'll find it's pretty straight forward. And...you're gonna want to make one for the burly man in your life!

I was giddy with delight when I finished this card. I can't wait to give it to my Dad for Father's Day.
Don't have a "Lumber-Jack" person in your circle of friends/family? Just change out the sentiment and make a Lumber-Jill to give to one of your girlfriends!
