Masculine Thank You


Are you ever in need of masculine thank yous?  I quite often need them for co-workers at work.  I was looking at the color combinations for the current One Layer Simplicity Challenge and decided to use the berry inspiration/colors to make my card today.  I used my new Verve Peaceful Medallions set and took the cue from this card to stamp the medallion and then used the back of a different stamp to create a soft outline to the medallion.  This would be a great set to make it in a variety of color combinations (I'm thinking an all season thank you card set.)

The boys are all back to school tomorrow morning...school supplies have been purchased and we'll be getting back into a much early bed and wake up times!

What a great way to use this as a masculine design! Love your take on this color combo! The choice/position of sentiment is spot on, Lynn!

oh, those medallions are perfect for masculine cards! I never thought of them that way! Okay, I just read when the boys are starting school...one of my questions in my email is answered :) ox

Perfect masculine card. Always a tough first week getting back into early wake ups and earlier bed times - at least it is for me LOL! Wishing them a great school year.

You are right that this is a pefect masculine card. Love the colors and the design. I am always in need of masculine get well cards (getting to be that age, I guess) and this would be perfect for that with a change of sentiment. Pinning to remind myself!

Lynn, this is absolutely perfect. Love how you used the colors, and the design is so classic. You're so right that you could vary the colors and create a lovely set with this design! Thanks so much for playing along with the OLS Challenge.

Great use of these colours to make a beautiful (but still masculine) card! So glad you joined us at OLS!
