Today I am sharing a masculine card and creating them is definitely outside my comfort zone. My card features several products from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps new May Release

I created the background by cutting strips of white cardstock in various sizes and swiping two different gray inks across them. Then, I glued the strips onto another white piece of cardstock, inked up the shiplap background with a darker gray and inked up the panel with it. Afterwards, I die cut the panel, stenciled the word inspire, added the brown mesh(trimmed to the edge), matted with gray and attached to a white base.

I stamped the images with ink on 3 black, colored with alcohol markers and fussy cut out. I used my x-acto knife to cut the inside parts out. I left my boss lady apha die in one piece instead of cutting it all apart. I cut a bunch of letters from white cardstock. I used the outlines to hold the letters while I inked them up with a dark gray ink. I assembled the card as seen using bearly arts glue as my adhesive to affix the images and letters.
