6 Masculine cards using the same pattern

I am on a roll. I just made 6 more cards using the bulk B&T Jubilee paper and chocolate cardstock. I used the fancy Thanks A1125  (Retired) and the May SOTM (another reason to buy the SOTM when you can!). Sorry I used stamps you can't get, but these cards can be made with almost any stamps.

For these cards, I tried to keep a masculine feel and didn't really use embellies. I used my spellbinders dies to cut the ovals and scalloped ovals, and the labels tags. Once again, while the paper was still in the spellbinders die, I used ink on a sponge to sponge in the center leaving a border all around on the top left and top right cards.

For the top left card, I cut two frames and then cut them on the diagonal. I pieced them together with a strip of cardstock on the back to hold them together. I aligned the points of the focal image so all three lined up perfectly.
