Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Masculine

The challenge this month at Whimsy Stamps is "Masculine Cards" - I will admit that masculine cards are not my "comfort zone".  In fact, I struggle with them terribly.  Especially "man" cards since it seems that most images fit for a masculine card are really better suited for "boys".  However having said all that, I found working with these wonderful stamps and die cut from Whimsy Stamps made designing this card pretty darn easy.  I also have to give credit to my mom who used this adorable layout for a baby card that I adore.  So, between her design inspiration and the die cut/stamp set, putting this together was a breeze.

These stamps are designed with wonderful Christmas sentiments, but I love the way the frame part of it can be used for just about anything with a simple circle punch in the middle.  I am all about using things as many times as I can and this allows me to use this for any occasion, not just Christmas.

Jump over to the Whimsy Challenge blog and join in the fun this month.  I would love to be inspired by your creations as I am always looking for great ideas for masculine cards.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:

Make it Monday - linky party
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - more than 2 design papers
Totally Gorjuss - stripes
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - anything goes
