Soft Moon Lake…

Today I have a masculine card for you.  It could be used for a birthday, thinking of you, graduation or promotion.  The Moon Lake stamp set lends itself to masculine cards and makes my work so much easier since I’ve already confessed masculine cards are a challenge for me usually.

Here’s the card…

This card is cased from a card I found on Pinterest that I have tweaked a little.  We actually made this card in classes this week.  The girls are always appreciative of masculine cards because they struggle with them too.
