Make it Monday: Masculine Cards

It's Make it Monday and today I chose Masculine cards this week.  This set of four cards came together in a snap.  Super quick and easy.  The sentiments all come from the Trust God stamp set and work for a variety of occasions including Thank You, Thinking of You, or for sending a quick I love you note!

Simple layout, wrapped Linen Thread around the card base several times.  Guys probably aren't into ribbon, so this was an easy masculine substitute for the frills of ribbon!  Speaking of, don't you love the 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in the In Colors?  SO cute.  Yes, they are retiring and a for sure must have!  Especially at 25% off.

Does it fit?  One of the first things I wondered about with the Trust God stamp set was whether or not this sentiment would fit inside the Decorative Label Punch and it does!  Punching a sentiment out is a quick and easy way to get an instant WOW!

Added a touch of Summer Starfruit with the Dahlia.  This shade of yellow/green works great with the blues in the Print Poetry DSP.  The buttons in the corner are an added accent just for fun!

Do guys like hearts?  Who knows, but I covered up the heart in this sentiment with the Summer Starfruit In Color Dahlia.  It's a simple card with just the Whisper White Baker's Twine wrapped around the card base.
