DoStamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #080 Masculine Confirmation Card

I had a lot of ideas for this week's DoStamperSTARS Challenge, but I needed to make my nephew a confirmation card, so I decided to incorporate the challenge into the card.

Do you have a difficult time making the "guy" cards?  I sure do!  It seems if I emboss, add too many dimensionals or layers it quickly turns into a "girly" card.  I find that simplicity is the key.

Here is this week's challenge:

Again, there are so many possibilities.  I decided to use the "soon to be retired" Lattice Bigz die, Whisper White cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Burnt Brown Sugar cardstock and Burnt Brown Sugar ink.  That's it....pretty simple. The hardest part of the whole card was cutting the dimensionals small enough to pop up the cross.  

Here is my nephew's confirmation card:
