A Manly Card

I am beginning to enjoy clean and simple cards more and more. And this style always makes a good card for a male. I made this one 4" by 4" with White CS as my one layer using an Annabelle Stamp "All Things Grow". I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink for the image and sentiments.....brown is always a good choice for a manly card, don't you think? Added some dew drops and manly brown ribbon to finish. Also did a row of embossing with Cuttlebug EF "With Love" to add texture.

Challenges:
AnnaBelle Stamps Blog: Say it with...a male card.
Allsorts Challenge: Clean and Simple style.
Truly Scrumptious: Clean and Simple.

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

Hi honey, I agree with you. Sometimes C&S cards are simply the best. Love this one Theresa. I only stamp with Momento Rich Cocoa now. It gives such a lovely soft finish once stamped. hugs Sharon

Fantastic card, Theresa! Love those sprinkles you used -- they really dress up the reeds! (Men do have to dress up occasionallly!)

Love it Theresa! I love CAS and this presses all the right buttons for me! The embossing really adds a great textural element as you mentioned. Very pretty...or should I say manly! Thanks for sharing it with us at AnnaBelle's this week.
