Well Worn = Masculine

I have so much DSP that I vowed I wouldn't order another pack till I had used some up, but (isn't there always a 'but'?) I was seeking some ideas for masculine cards.  I have made a sample book of all the DSPs and loved the look of Well Worn.  Teamed with the stamp set Extreme Elements, I made four cards based on a design by Carla Bazhenow which you can see here.
The DSP is so striking that it doesn't need much else.

For this one, I stamped one of the images from Extreme Elements.

This one is also has one of the Extreme Elements images stamped onto the DSP.  The sentiment is a perfect masculine one, from Happiest Birthday Wishes, one of the current hostess sets.

I made insides for all four cards but I'll just show you the inside for the card above.  A bit of sponging around the edges and one simple image in the corner.

And the last one I roughed up a bit more.  I wish I had put the brads a bit closer together.

That's topped up my supply of masculine cards for a little bit and hopefully given you some inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!
