Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Who doesn’t need masculine cards in their stash – and are masculine cards easy or difficult for you? The card I’m sharing with you today is a simple design featuring Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock paired with Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock! This neutral combination is one of my favorites!

*Cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock with textured side up, along with a slightly smaller panel for the inside with smoother side up and a square die cut with smoother side up.
*Cut a layering panel for the front from Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock along with a slightly smaller layering panel for the inside, a wide embellishing strip for the front and a narrow embellishing strip for the inside.
*Cut a background piece for front from map patterned paper along with an embellishing strip for the inside.

*Layer the panels and add embellishing strips.
*Stamp the image and sentiment in black ink on the square die cut, and stamp the inside sentiment in black ink.

*Adhere the stamped square die cut to the front panel, and adhere the panel to the card base.
*Affix several black gemstones to the stamped square die cut for a little interest.
*Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.

I’m definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I’m addicted to stamping. I love making cards, ATCs, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, paper purses and mini albums), mixed media projects, art journaling, altering stuff and occasional beading.
