For some reason, many of us find it difficult to create masculine cards.  Well, I am happy to help with that struggle. This quick and easy card is perfect.  I hope you will create one for that special man in your life.  I really like the texture the Burlap Ribbon and Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder provide.  Those little touches can add a lot to a card!

Change the sentiment and this card is great for any occasion.

The Pinewood Planks embossing folder provides a great background to the tree. As you can see, I lightly rubbed the embossed cardstock with Soft Suede ink and a sponge dauber.  That helps bring out the texture and helps the die cut tree to “pop”.

Masculine card showcasing the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! by Kathleen Wingerson www.kathleenstamps.com  #SU #woodtextures #kathleenstamps #kathleenwingerson #guygreetings

Do you struggle with masculine cards?  Yes, masculine cards seem to be a problem for many stampers. Including me!  While searching Pinterest, for some ideas, I came across a cute card by Rachel Tessman. I liked the scored lines above and below the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I changed the colors, layout and added the pearls to my design.  Thanks, Rachel!

For a slightly different look, I turned the piece of Wood Textures DSP over and used the other side.  Yup, I like it, but I think I prefer my original card.  What do you think?

SU! colors used on this card:

 

Cutting and Scoring Instructions:  Basic Black (card base) 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″, Basic Black (layer behind Wood Textures DSP) 1-1/8″ x 3″; Very Vanilla (inside card) 4″ x 5-1/4″, Very Vanilla 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″; Early Espresso 3″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 3/4″, 7/8″, 2-1/4″, 2-3/8″, and 2-1/2″; Wood Textures DSP (front of card) 1″ x 3″ and (inside of card) 1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

On my video, I used the Stampin’ Trimmer to score the Early Espresso card. Hopefully, you can see by using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool I can achieve a deeper score, which I like much better!
