Card: Giving a card for a guy a try!

Hello and Welcome! 

I am here today to share one of my first takes on making a "masculine" card.  I will be the first to agree with anyone who says that making a card for a guy is not the easiest task.  I don't know if I really succeeded, but I at least stuck to some neutrals so hopefully I get some brownie points for that.  I knew I needed to stick to a pretty basic color scheme, but I did reach out to a challenge or two for some sketch inspiration. 

And here is today's card...

Card Details

Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 
Paper: Whisper White, Share What You Love DSP
Ink: Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake
Stamps: Work of Art, Sunshine Sayings, Make a Difference
Accessories:  Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Sprig Punch, Linen Twine

I'll leave you with a quick close up of the outside sentiment as well as a quick pick of the inside sentiment.  The Work of Art stamp set is so versatile and I love the detailed, paintbrush look that you get from the stamps.  I think I will need to pull this set out more often! 

This card was inspired by the following challenge: 

I think I forgot that the wood planks needed to be cut into squares...loose interpretation from this girl this week :/

Keep Austin Crafty!
