Today's card features the retiring stamp set Plant Hope, which includes this wonderful palm tree. I have found this is a very versatile set. Besides masculine cards, I have used the pine trees in this set for making wedding cards for a rustic, mountain lodge wedding or they could be used in a winter/Christmas scene as well. (The pine trees I mean; the palm tree not so much).
A masculine card usually has clean and simple lines with little in the way of embellishments. I added texture and interest with the embossing folder and brad. The sponged on ink adds just enough color. To get the line between sand and sky, I ripped a piece of card stock to use as a guide. Cover the area you don't want inked and sponge the exposed area.
