I needed a masculine birthday card, so here's what I came up with building around some plaid paper. I used a cuttlebug tag die, trimming the tab off the sentiment oval, distressing and inking a bit, then layering over a slightly darker piece.
After I had this all glued together I realized it needed some stitching on the bottom layer. I was only going to do a border like I had on the plaid piece but my thread got hung up and it ended up sewing wonky so I just decided to go around again in an uneven line. I think it gives it more character anyway and goes with the casual feel of the plaid and burlap.
