I used the Moon Lake and Truly Grateful stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create a masculine thank you card to share today.
My card design was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 256.
And the colors for my card were inspired by Sunday Stamps SSC95.
I started by adhering a panel from the Adventure Bound DSP Stack to a panel of Basic Gray card stock, then to a Soft Sky card base with SNAIL.
I adhered another strip of Adventure Bound DSP to a strip of Basic Gray card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL. I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Grateful stamp set in Basic Gray ink on on a strip of Naturals White card stock. I punched the end of the strip with the Banner Punch and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the goose image from the Moon Lake stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a panel of Naturals White card stock and I colored the water area with my Soft Sky and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers (Smoky Slate Marker Pack is a Sale-A-Bration item, also available in the Annual Catalog). I cut the image out with a Circles Collection Framelits Die and adhered it with SNAIL to a circle punched from Basic Gray card stock with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.
I adhered the layered image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a single Smoky Slate Candy Dot from the Neutrals Candy Dots pack next to the sentiment.
I adhered a strip of the leftover Adventure Bound DSP to a panel of Naturals White card stock on the inside of the card.

This is truly a Perfect masculine card, Amy! Having a hubby, 3 sons and 2 grandsons, I am always in need of masculine cards but they are not always easy to create. I love everything about your card, even the candy dot because you didn’t go overboard with them! ; ) Any guy would appreciate that part!
It’s snowing and there is also ice in the forecast for today. It does look pretty out there….I’m just glad I got all my shopping done yesterday….
Thanks Roberta, glad that you liked it! I try hard not to over embellish on the masculine cards, Candy Dots are nice because they’re not so shiny and sparkly. 🙂 We missed the snow and ice in our area, but just north of us looks like they got hit…so it was really close to us! Stay warm today!
Amy, I loved how you used the designer paper. This card is awesome.
Thanks so much!! 🙂
Thanks Linda!! 🙂
So beautiful in blue…..love the rocks!
Thanks Linda! 🙂
Amy, this is the BEST card I’ve seen using this set! Love the way you used the dsp and how you punched out the goose (I thought he was a duck..lol). Great guy card!
Thanks so much Gerri!!
thank you for sharing this. Your card is beautiful. I have to case it! Joyce
Thank Joyce, feel free to CASE it! 🙂
This is awesome Amy! I like everything about it. It is nice how you let the water do all of the talking in the circle with the duck. It totally works. The colors you picked are great too.
Thanks so much Terri! 🙂
Amy, love the DSP that you used. What a great masculine card! This is my favorite card that I have seen using that type of DSP. Great job.
Thanks Kristi!! 🙂
This card is wonderful! I am so eager to receive this stamp and pleased that you have given us such a perfect example.
Thanks Melanie! Your stamp set should be arriving at my house on Monday and I’ll get them sent back out on Tuesday. Glad that you’re excited about using it!! 🙂
This is beautiful, Amy!
Thanks so much Mitzi!! 🙂
Wow, what a gorgeous use of the DSP Amy! I love your layering and the juxtaposition of the goose in the water with the rocky layer. You crafted an AWESOME masculine card! 🙂
Thanks so much Jill! Glad that you liked it! 🙂
wow, beautiful card Amy you are making me love that stamp set girl…
Thanks so much Sandi!! I love this set…you definitely “need” it. 😉
What a lovely, serene card, Amy! I have resisted buying that DSP stack because I wasn’t sure about the “realistic”-looking images. Now I’m rethinking that…great use of the stones paper. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunday Stamps!
Thanks so much for stopping by to leave a comment! I love that DSP stack, there are some awesome designs in it! 🙂
Wow, Amy your card “rocks!” I haven’t found time to tackle that specific DSP, thanks for sharing your inspiration, and thanks for playing at Sunday Stamps!
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment! 🙂
