Happy Birthday, Man!

One of my favorite styles of card is a masculine card.  I find these one of the easiest ones for me to make.  I'm not sure if it's my love of blues and browns or my love of natural, rustic looking stuff or my love of texture on a card, but masculine cards just come naturally to me.  Good thing because there are a LOT of boys in my life!

The card I'm showing you today was designed as a birthday card, but would make a fantastic Father's Day card if you just changed out the sentiment.

I used some of my favorite "go to" masculine products for this card...Wood grain embossing folder, blues and browns, the little button brads from the Vintage Trinkets and linen thread (I love how I can make linen thread look vintagey and feminine or rustic and masculine!).

Chevron paper?  I know what you're wondering..."Where is that from", right?  Well, it's a piece of cardstock stamped with the chevron oval from the Oh, Hello set.  I stamped it once across the top of the cardstock and once across the bottom of the cardstock and the space in the middle is covered by the strip with the sentiment.  So fun!  I love when I can take something from a pretty feminine set and make it masculine.  That oval is proving to be a VERY useful stamp in my collection!
