I think this serene scene in today's focal stamp from DRS Designs is perfect for those difficult masculine cards. I'm always struggling when it comes to making those, so I played off the image and made a nautical looking card.
I colored the Seaside Dock with my Copic markers and used the Dot Ribbon Edger stamp in the background, since I thought it looked a bit like ripples in the water. (Just and FYI...The edger stamp is a 2 for 1 stamp. It's paired with a great border of Christmas lights!) I added a strip of dry embossed stars, and a punched border that I embellished with a gel pen and wrapped it with some twine. Twine and buttons seem to be my go to embellishment when it comes to cards for men.
The On My Mind Greeting works for any number of occasions and you can find more wonderful stamps in the new releases section at DRS Designs.
Have a great day!
