Young Masculine Card

Hello, and welcome here!  I have another masculine card to share with you.  I was almost out of masculine cards so I needed to create some more for my stash.  I needed a few younger masculine cards, and because I love this stamp set from Close To My Heart, I designed my card around it.

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Instead of making 4 cards with 1 image, I made 2 of each....2 guys on bike, 2 guys on skateboard.  The image was looking a little empty so as I was wondering what to do about it, I pulled out the stamp set I was going to use on the inside...which is a splatter (see inside of card below)....that's when I had an 'aha' moment.  I used some of the splatter to look like dirt/mud under the image...ya gotta love that when it happens:)
As I was thinking of matting the image, I wanted to do something a little different and thought matting just the corners would work, so I used a some black scraps I had, and it ended up being a better look, so I continue using them rather than cutting them to fit just the corners.

Recipe:  PP-Basic Grey Marolain Black Forest Strata, CTMH SS-X-Treme & You Rock, CS-Bazzil Black Mono & Bazzil Cream Prismatics, CTMH Ink-Black & Desert Sand, Spellbinders-Labels 22, Stampin' Up-Label Punch, Rhinestones, Foam Squares.

YOU ROCK with these masculine cards. The terrific structures and shapes with bold silhouette images really creates terrific texture and depth; perfect for a manly man card. :)
