Pallet Thoughts and Whisky Business card with a flap closure.

Hello Stampers, 
A masculine card with the Pallet Thoughts and Whisky Business card with flap closure.
I have been having lots of fun with the hinge step stamping. It is so easy to make the wood grain look with the Pallet Thoughts stamp set. It is designed for the hinge step. I will use this wood stamp over and over so be on the lookout for lots more of this background.
