Complete Recovery

We all know how difficult it can be to create a card for a man/ boy.  I like to create a card every once in a while that is great for a male.

This is a great card that is simple and perfect for a male. 

I used Whisper White for my base and stamped my tree on the card by carefully colouring the tree with ink pads.  I added a layer of Chocolate Chip and Old Olive cardstock just slightly over the base of the tree.

I added a line of paper piercing on the bottom of the Old Olive and stamped my sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink.

I needed a bit more in the embellishment department but not too much, so I added a few corduroy buttons and added a knot of linen thread to the centre button.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stamp Sets: Thoughts & Prayers
Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive

  1. I love the dimension that you gave to the trunk of that tree. Very nicely done!

  2. What a great man-card!! I love those corduroy buttons. I often have a hard time picking embellishment for guy cards, because bows and bling just seem 'girly', but those corduroy buttons and the piercing along the bottom are perfect! I love how you left all the white space on top too - it looks so professional. Awesome, inspiring card!
