Here's the Design Team:


Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.

For these two Masculine cards I didn't add ribbon or much of anything. I went the simple route.
The above card was stamped with red, yellow and green ink to match the colors of the papers I used. The top card could be for either gender.
My friends and I went on a scrapbook retreat. We stopped at a Duncan Donuts on the way and there was a huge stack of mini newspapers made to look old times. I asked if I could have some of the papers for the retreat and was told to take them all as they were last month's edition. My friends told me I was crazy. They saw the pages I made with the paper and snatched almost all of it! I used a piece of the newspaper on this card. I stamped the image in black onto the paper. I added a sentiment with a few studs and I was finished!
