monday...masculine cards and goodbye to AWDML

Today's post is a bittersweet one as I'm saying good bye to A Walk Down Memory Lane. I've been working with them for almost 2 years now and I want to thank Lisa for giving me the opportunity to serve for so long on her DT. I enjoyed working for AWDML alonside the rest of the DT. I'll definitely miss everyone there!

So, today I'm sharing with you my last two cards that I made for them.

The first one is a masculine Thank You card. I always have such a hard time working on a masculine cards that I decided to challenge myself for this one.

I really like how it turned out! I used Authentique Loyal 6x6 Paper Pad and a Stamp School tree image. I used masculine colors (brown, green, blues) and added a hemp cord 'rope'.

Here's a close up of the card so you can see all the textures and layer.

The second card is also a masculine card but this time, it's an encouragement card. I made this one for my cousin (a teenage boy).

I kept this one a bit simply since I had to ship it as opposed to hand deliver it. Again, I used a masculine color palette and a grass image stamp. I embellished this card with distressing, stitching and buttons.

I hope that you can find some inspiration to make your own masculine (fill in the blank) card. They are hard but necessary to make sometimes!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciate it!
