Let's Squash It! Challenge #21 - Make it Manly!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 21st challenge here at 

Let's Squash It! 

Let's Squash It! is The Embossing Folder Challenge.  We are gonna help you explore the world of the not so humble embossing folder and encourage you to dig 'em out, knock the dust off and find old, new and fun ways to make your projects pop. 

We have an awesome team to keep you entertained and awesome challenge themes to stretch your creativity and get you using all those long forgotten and neglected embossing folders. 
For those of you who are just tuning in you can check the previous posts for the story behind the genesis of the challenge and the technique posts for awesome tips and techniques to help you make the most of your supplies and folders.

Challenges start on the 10th of the month and run to the last day at 23.59 GMT.  We will be picking top picks and a winner, who will have a chance to be our guest designer for a future challenge.  There is a little prize on offer for a randomly selected winner and these will all be announced on the 8th of next month.   

So, Challenge #21
And this month's theme is

Use any Embossing Folder AND Make it Manly!

Use any embossing folder and give your card a masculine style.  Please make sure you include both parts of the challenge on your card and also check da roolz to ensure your entry will be eligible for the random prize draw!

We are very pleased to have our Let's Squash It!! Empress joining us as our guest designer this month.  Please welcome Joanne aka Angelnorth

"Hello fellow Squashettes.  I'm delighted Gail and Jo have invited me back as Guest Designer.  Let's Squash It is probably my favourite challenge! For those who don't know me, I'm Joanne, usually known as Angelnorth online.  I still try to live by my Mum's crafting mantra if things go "wrong" - she always said "Can you make a feature of it?" so I tend towards the belief that there are no mistakes, just artistic opportunities!  I've been papercrafting for long enough that things I bought early on have become fashionable again, which just goes to show you should never throw anything away!"

And here is Joanne's card using
cART-US Embossing folder -

Oh, and as I had advance notice, I managed a second card combined with another challenge — just remembered to link that up too.
