Less is More Challenge - "Masculine"

This week's Less is More Challenge is to make a masculine card! Cards for the males in our lives can be tricky but not with the new A Muse Studio "Hey, Man" stamp set! I asked my husband what color lounger he'd like in his virtual world - he said blue. I am not a big fan of blue which makes him so very sad since there is nothing blue in our house - nor is there a Barcalounger to be found 'round these parts.
Don't ya just dig the Grunged Sunrays?!! That stamp draws your eye directly to the focal point of this card which is the chair. The larger margin of kraft paper on the left side of the card balances out the sentiment on the right of the card. I am really tickled with how this card turned out - hope Corey enjoys his paper chair - looks comfy! All stamps/ink from A Muse Studio.

Ha! Maybe I should make my Cory a paper barcalounger- that's as close as he'll get too!!! :D

What a great image, Michelle! Love the rays! Is that a stamp? If so, it's great for drawing the focus to the chair!

My husband has a recliner chair... actually so do I, but his looks more like the one on your card!
It sounds like you had fun making this one and those stamps are great.
Super man's card!
(there is a gap between those two words!!!)

The recliner chair is popular with men because it's a chair AND a gadget! Great card Michelle - love the rays!
