I needed a masculine card for my brother-in-laws birthday card, so I used the Text & Texture: Wood Slices stamp set and came up with this:
I used the medium sized die from the Pierced Feature Frames and die cut my stamped piece, and also cut 2 extra frames from scrap white cardstock to make my frame a little more dimensional. I used a piece of kraft cs and one of the Noted: Pinked A2 Vertical dies to put behind my frame, and then added my birthday sentiment in the center using the Pen & Ink stamp set. My little inlaid leaves are from the Phrase Play #7 die set and I used Honey Nut, Scarlet Jewel, Summer Sunrise, & So Saffron cardstocks. I also heat embossed the edges of the leaves in copper.
Here's a close up so you can see the copper embossing a bit better. A little bit of rustic twine finished off my masculine card.
