Masculine cards have always been a bit of a challenge for me. I think the "To The Nines Specialty DP" is a perfect remedy for that! (too bad it's discontinued) I stamped my image on white paper using Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip. I then sponged the edge to make it look more vintage.
To assemble my card I layered a piece of the "To The Nines Specialty DP" onto a piece of Chocolate Chip CS along with a white layer that was punched with the Scallop Trim Border from Stampin' Up. I then took a piece of 1/4" grosgrain Chocolate Chip Ribbon, placed it around the matted DP, brought the ends of the ribbon around back and stuck them down to the back of the Chocolate Chip CS. I then centered and mounted this piece to the Sahara Sand card front. Lastly, I stamped the greeting in Sage Shadow.
