Although I call this masculine, it's really more generic. I chose DCWV colors for the banners that weren't too girly or boyish. The white is my actual card base. I heat embossed the black card stock with a Stampendous sentiment, making sure to use my Embossing Buddy before stamping and adding the powder. I used a Spellbinder die to make the banners and attached them with black American Crafts brads. The idea for this layout is here.
