Here is another sample of a masculine card that I put together recently using the Traveler and Endless Birthday Wishes stamp sets. I added a piece of Mint Macaroon that was embossed with the Boho Chic folder behind some Typeset specialty paper and then added my stamped layers.
The linen thread is just wrapped around several times and attached to the back of the Typeset specialty paper layer.
