SSS~Full Card Hourglass die

Hi there! Today I’ve got a couple of cards made featuring the Full Card Hourglass die by Simon Says Stamp.
SSS~Full Card Hourglass dieI die cut several pieces of cardstock with the Hourglass die and pieced them together to create this geometric background. I loved these neutral colors that I found in an older DCWV matstck pack called Linen Closet and thought it was a perfect fit for a masculine card. The sentiment is from the Dad Grandpa Uncle dies by Simon Says Stamp as well.
