I never seem to have enough manly cards so I held back on the flowers and feminine colors and went with masculine instead. It took a little bit of thought and some thinking outside the box, but I did it.
To layer the punched sentiment, I first inked it with markers and then stamped it. Then I cut it out. I layered it onto some Basic Gray card stock that I punched with the Artisan Label punch. That is easier than punching the stamped image and then trying to fussy cut a layer behind it.
Some textured background and some Candy Dots were all the embellishments I used. It killed me to leave all of that white space but I wanted to stay with the sketch.
