 Today I used a sentiment from Create with tlc and made a MAN CARD! I cut this sentiment using a Reverse Wonky Rectangle die - a simple but effective shape that looks like a fat bow tie silhouette.

I think I'm getting more comfy with the man card, so I've started making more of them. I think I've learned that simpler is better for a masculine card and so using a fabulous pattern paper for the card base tends to be the direction I lean towards. This paper is from Timeless Vintage, a Kaiser Craft paper pad I got from Kate at ihp.

Have a terrific day!

stamps; sentiment (create with tlc)
paper; timeless vintage (kaiser craft from ihp), cashmere, raven, coconut swirl (bazzill)

Fun guy card! Very cool idea using clock dp in the bg. I like the soft sponging around the sentiment and the dp panels.

Awesome card. I love making cards, but hardly ever make a masculine card. I think it's because it can't have frills and bling. :) This one is just fantastic. May have to copy somewhat. TFS
