You're my SUPER Hero.

This is my third post for Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge Blog. Come over and join me in the latest challenge, 'Stepper Cards'. This is my first card using this technique and it really was super easy to make. It's a nice way to jazz up a male card without turning it too girly. :) 

I made this card for my father-in-law, who, along with my MIL, has helped me immensely since my husband has been prepping and/or at trial for the last two weeks. I couldn't have done it without them. 

I started with an image from Sugar Pea Designs called 'My Hero'. I colored him up using my Copic markers. I Glossy Accented his glasses. The designer paper is Recollections 'Comic Heroes' pad. Love this stack. 


I fussy cut out some of the action bubbles from the paper line. I found the hardest thing about this card was figuring out how to decorate it. Hopefully, since this is my first, I will only get better. :) 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
