Masculine Cards

Making masculine cards are always a bit tricky to make. They take a lot more thinking time than flowery, pretty cards. Since I have so many wonderful and important men in my world, I work very hard to be sure I have masculine cards around! So, here are a couple I made:
A pretty Clean and Simple card! I love putting sentiments onto popsicle sticks. They usually require being "trimmed" which is quite tricky...but totally worth the effort!!
Supplies: Paper-Very Vanilla, River Rock (SU!), brown (Bazzill); Ink - Chocolate Chip, River Rock (SU!); Stamps- Father Knows Best (Papertrey Ink), Lovely As a Tree (Stampin' Up!), Other- popsicle stick, hemp, sponge.
Another attempt at masculine but I think that brown ribbon might have spoiled it a bit...and maybe that turquoise too. I do really like the repeated sentiment down the side.
Supplies: Paper-Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip (all SU!); Stamps - Tree Cluster Sm. (Stampscapes), Fantastic Foilage (SU!), Father Knows Best (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Chocloate Chip (SU!); Other - Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, 1" circle punch.
Thanks for visiting.

I love that popsicle stick idea. I may have to add that to my arsenal...
I crafted up a storm over the weekend, so I have some craft table scraps headed your way...
