Mastering the Manly card

For the manly needs, a nice card with a few things going on but still not "too pretty." When we stampers look over our supplies, it can be difficult to find a stamp set that isn't all flowers and flourishes, too much prettiness for the guys in our lives, but we do need to make cards for them, too!

Hello Lovely stamp set is retiring at the end of the month. If you're thinking you might want to own it, pick up the phone or get on-line RIGHT NOW because once these sets sell out, they are gone for good! click here to SHOP NOW

Here we have used Cherry Cobbler, Basic Grey and Basic Black to make it masculine. The sentiment can easily be switched up to be a birthday card or graduation, the color could be changed to school colors or favorite colors.

We used Coordination cardstock which looks awesome after running it through the embossing folder and sanding a smidge off the surface, but you can re-create the look by rubbing a lighter color of ink over the embossed surface or sponging a light coat of white ink over your dark cardstock.

Happy Stamping!
