Cards...Just for the Men!

I was in the mood to make some masculine cards so I just played with some simple layouts and finally inked my TAC ship collage stamp set and my favorite masculine set called Light the Path. I really love the distressed look so I used the cracked glass technique seen here. It is such a fun technique. The only thing is getting the card to crack the way you want it too after putting in the freezer. I kept the layout simple...on the inside of the card, I stamped a lighthouse image on the bottom corner using distress ink Antique Linen and stamped the sentiment in dark brown.
