Good Tuesday morning.  I don’t know about you but masculine cards do not come easy for me.  I my opinion masculine projects need to be more simple and less cluttered. They do not call for ribbons, buttons and other accessories that we love to put on feminine cards. I think the Grand Oak Tree paired with a simple sentiment is a perfect card for any guy    .

The sentiment was stamped on the card base with with olive craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I created the double matted frame and mounted it on the card base with mounting tape

The tree was cut using paper matching the frame and I used my peeled paint distress marker to color the leaves.  I applied rolled glue dots to the back of several leaves to hold in place and tucked the trunk in behind the frame,  I like the clean and simple background with the main focus on the tree and sentiment.
