Masculine Birthday Cards

Hello everyone!  I am super excited to be a guest designer at 3 Girl JAM today!  They have a lot of fun ribbons and flair too.  Without further ado, here is the card that I created using their yummy Coffee Jute Twine.
 I always seem to struggle with guy cards.  Sometimes it is best to keep things simple and let the paper and sentiment do the talking.  All the papers I used on these cards are from DCWV's Guy Stack.  I LOVE that stack.  It is perfectly masculine.  Here is a second card I made just using different paper combinations.
 A close-up of the lacing and eyelets.
Have a wonderfully crafty day!
