Very Simple Masculine Birthday Card

I find masculine cards the hardest to make, because I love adding ribbon or other types of embellishment to my cards.  So, instead I turn to my embossing folders to give the card a bit of embellishment without adding all of that extra frill.

Marina Mist cardstock was used for the card base, and I added a layer of Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper, and both were embossed with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  A punched sentiment added with dimensionals, and I have my simple masculine card.

I wasn't sure how I felt about the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper for my Christmas cards, but I really like the warm textures for masculine cards.

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Marina Mist #119682, Whisper White #100730
Designer Series Paper:  Frostwood Lodge #124002 (Holiday Mini)
Stamp Set:  Perfect Punches #117022 wood or #120516 clear
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Houndstooth Embossing Folder #123134, Dimensionals #104430
