A Couple of Cute Vintage Cards

I love the Close to My Heart April 2015 Stamp of the Month. The Typed Note stamp set is full of fun sayings, with a vintage feel.

I made a couple of masculine cards, which is not my forte, and they are two of my favorite cards. 

I hope you enjoy the video below, and it gives you some ideas for using this versatile stamp set. Below the video is a list of the supplies I used, and the dimensions of each card.

Do you like to make masculine cards? I think I'm getting the hang of it.
