Simple Stems

The Hardwood Background stamp is perfect for masculine cards but don't limit it's use.  Here it is teamed with a single flower from the Simple Stems Stamp Set.  The colors of Very Vanilla, Early Expresso, Rose Red, and Olive were used on this simple card.

I used a sponge dauber to ink around the edges of the card front in Early Espresso.  This will add depth to the background.

The flower was stamped and then I "fussy cut" around it.  Stampin' Dimensionals were used to pop up the flower.  Again layers on your card add depth and interest.

I often use the Hexagon Punch to form banners.  Check out the sentiment banner.  Each layer was punched separately.
