I decided to go masculine this week with my card:
I added various images from multiple stamp sets on this one and dirtied it up a little. I started with the embossing on the card base using the Arrows Embossing Folder on Crumb Cake Cardstock. I then added a strip of Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon diagonal around the card base.
I added two layers of cardstock using the Deco Labels Framelits Dies for the conglomeration of layers using Bermuda Bay and Whisper White Cardstocks. I glued the banners on the cardstock first before I cut it so that the banners would carry the shape of the framelit:
I have some stamping from the Peachy Keen and the Off The Grid Stamp Sets in Early Espresso Ink. I also used the ink with a Blender Pen to add some dirtiness to it here and there.
The Naturals Button and Candy dots work well to keep this card masculine but also adding a little bit of bling at the same time:
