I had the best day yesterday creating cards with the Adventure Awaits Designer Series Paper Stack.  It all started because I need a birthday card for my brother-in-law.

 Usually when I am making masculine cards, I try to keep them pretty simple.  This card is no exception.  The foundation for my card is the Adventure Awaits dsp stack.  Did I mention that I am loving this stuff!  All of the dap on my card is from it.  Be sure to turn the patterned pieces of dsp over because the backside is usually a plain color.

After cutting a piece of Whisper White c.s. with the Party Pennants Bigz L Die.  I randomly stamped the splotch from Gorgeous Grunge in stamped off Early Espresso Ink.  In addition, I inked the edges of my pennant with a Sponge Dauber & the  Ink.

Guy Greetings is a stamp set that I nearly overlooked.  But, I really like some of the images and all of the sentiments so it is a must have for me.  After stamping the Wrench image from the set, I followed it with the sentiment right beneath the wrenches.  Both are stamped with Early Espresso Ink.  Near the bottom of the pennant, I stamped the birthday sentiment from Guy Greetings.  The font is ideal for masculine cards.

The pennant is finished with a piece of 1/4" Early Espresso Cotton Ribbon that is stapled to the card with the Handheld Stapler & Mini Staples.  The pennant is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals in order to create some visual interest. 

If you need a quick masculine card, consider using both the Adventure Awaits dsp stack & Guy Greetings.  I will be showing more of them this week so please stop back.
