Feel Better Soon

For our churches card ministry we send out lots of thank you cards, thinking of you, baby cards, sympathy, and get well cards. So here is a clean and simple get well card that I feel could be both masculine or feminine. I don't know about the rest of you, but when it comes to making a masculine card I freeze, total creative block. I am trying to work that creative "muscle" more, but it is much easier for me to create a feminine card.
Post a comment on how you make a card more masculine.
Paper: moss green, Stampin Up!; dp, Cafe Mediterranean, DCWV
Stamps: Sentiments, American Crafts clear stamps
Ink: orange, Stampabilities Dye ink; Close to cocoa, Stampin Up!
Tools: ovals, Nestablilites; paper piercer and mat, Stampin Up!, metalic pens gelly roll, Sakura; corner rounder, EK Success
Embellishments: twill ribbon
Technique: I had uneven coverage on the sentiment, so I went over it with a brown glitter gelly roll pen and then decided to carry it over to image by adding a small dot in each "bud"

  1. I really like this card. I think it's a great layout. The twill ribbon seems to make it more masculine too.
