Masculine Cards

Hello Dreamers!
How about a few masculine cards??  I made this card for a friend who is going through cancer  treatment.  I thought it turned out nice know me...I can't stop at just one.  So, I kept stamping and stamping!!  The stamp is called "Cattail Bird"   (D1222)   and is from Impression Obsession.    

The DP is from Basic Grey.   For the image, I covered the stamp with the lighter colored ink and then touched the edges of the image with the darker colored ink-and then stamped on white/cream CS.  This gives the stamped image a nice shaded effect.  I stamped several more images in different color combinations.   

The DP is from K & Company in the other three cards.  

I used a Spellbinder's die on this card.  And this is what the inside looks like.

The last three cards went to the Card Ministry that I am involved with.
