Do you find that making "manly cards" is difficult for you?  It doesn't have to be hard.  Sometimes the stamp set makes the difference and sometimes simply the colors you choose can help.  If you use blues, browns, and greens as your basic colors, they tend to lend themselves to a more masculine look.

Of course, a good stamp set can help.  You should check out the Wetlands stamp set in the current catalog.  The main image is a goose (Canada goose maybe?), but there are also images of little birds (I think they are sandpipers?), some grass, and three sets of words.  So versatile!  I have seen so many great cards made with this stamp set.  It's definitely a keeper!

Today's card was stamped by Judy DiScipio using the Wetlands stamp set.  She always does such beautiful work and this card is no exception!

I also wanted you to notice how making a small change (such as using a different color of Designer Series Paper) can give the card a whole new look.  Both these colors of Designer Series Paper are from the Sweater Weather DSP in the Holiday Catalog.
So which background is your favorite?  I can't decide - I like them both!

Until next time...
