Please hop to these designer's blogs:
I chose the Oldie But Goodie stamp set, Be Wild & Free for this masculine explosion card!  I created an African scene on the front of my card with loads of sponging.  I added a sentiment and a zebra strip behind on my white card base.   
My card opens up (pardon my hand and my daughter's hand, but these things are sometimes difficult to photograph) to show a few more animals and the rest of my sentiment.  I think these cards are great because there is so much room to write.  This card impressed my man and his two band mates.  One of his buddies asked where I got it...to which I replied, "Upstairs in my craft room".  His wife is crafty in a different sort of way so he could really appreciate the effort.
