Leaf Frond Masculine Congrats -

Mom popped by yesterday and needed a couple masculine graduation cards - When you keep the layout simple and use great stamps/paper you can construct two fabulous cards in no time flat!! I used the new Leaf frond II stamp from A Muse stamped in Momento Sahara Sand with a PTI sentiment on top. Roughing up the edges with a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser enhances the masculine look -
Lots of us find masculine cards to be intimidating but kraft paper seems rugged to me. Besides, once this card is opened, is the recipient going to look past the fact that he sees Ben Franklin smirking at him to analyze card construction??!! I thought not!
This manly paper is from my Basic Grey Archaic 6x6" paper pad - Using an EKSuccess Border Punch to shorten the front of the card allows a little patterned paper to be put on the inside - fun touch! I can't decide which one I love the most!
