Masculine Monday #2

This is my second week for making masculine cards.
Yay! I'm two for two!

I recently received some happy mail from Your Next Stamp. I've seen
them used a few times and loved them so I ordered a few. I love how
they stamp - I'll definitely be ordering more in the future.


This one is called So Sorry Donkey and there's a coordinating die - which
for some reason I didn't order ???? but will be rectifying soon.
It's got some great sentiments too.



There are a few keys to making masculine cards:
- make it personal
- make it humorous
- keep things simple
- use darker colors
- use bold patterns
- keep embellishments to a minimum
- use natural elements 


For this card I did some very simple coloring with prismacolor pencil crayons, paired it with some bold patterned dsp and added a humorous sentiment.
Simple, right?

Happy Stampin'
