Here's a card and gift I will be sending my DBIL. Hope he likes it. It was CAS (Clean and Simple). I used the leftover materials after wrapping the gift and came up with a simple manly card. Hope the black tie (bow tie) will emphasize masculinity.
Paper: The Paper Studio, Embassy and DCWV
Tools: EK edge punch and the new EK journaling papershape punches
Embellishment: AC chipboard alpha and punctuation, satin ribbon and Bazzill Basics shape borders
I haven't grasped yet the different possibilities in making a masculine card but I will always keep on trying. Hope this one would pass...
