A Masculine Card with Designer Paper ~ CFC54

I am going to make cards this summer... A LOT of cards! I feel like I really abandoned my passion during the school year and I got myself so thrown out of balance. I need to get inky and cut up paper and do it just for fun! To help myself get the mojo flowin', I'll be checking out as many challenge blogs as possible. Here is a card I did after checking out CAS-ual Fridays most recent post. Great place to get clean and simple ideas and inspiration!

All a•muse|studio products used except for the punch:
Paper: French Roast Woodgrain, Sugar, Buttercup
Stamps: Family Icons and Brief Notes
Ink: a•muse pigment ink in Blueberry, Cherry, and Memento Rich Cocoa
Tools: EK Success binder edge punch

This week's challenge is to do a clean and simple, masculine card using design paper. When I think masculine, I think of a•muse's woodgrain paper. Men woodworking, chopping wood, out in the woods... so masculine to me! And I had not yet inked our Family Icons set, so it was time to bust it out!  The sentiment comes from Brief Notes and makes this card more versatile. I can see using this is as a father's day card, thank you, card, or just something fun to slip into my husband's drawer for him to find at some random time. 

Don't forget ~ we've got two days left in May, which means you have two more days to get ahold of our AMAZING pigment ink at 20% off! I ordered every single color that I didn't already own. Can't wait for my package to come in the mail! If you want to take advantage of this great deal, hop on over to my web store before May 31st at 11:59 pm pst! Webstore link: HERE

Have a great day and go get inky!
