Hi guys. Today I have a masculine birthday card to share. Masculine cards, in general, seem to be everyone's most challenging cards to create. I find little boys' cards to be pretty simple, cause you can add a cute animal image and it works. But when you start making cards for adults, it gets a lot harder. Especially when you try a card without a coloured image (which isn't really my style in the first place).
So when I set out to make masculine cards (for older guys)...I like to keep them Clean and Simple for starters. I often look if I can find a sketch online to use, which I did in this case. And when I finally do find something that turns out really really really well, well I mass produce! :p LOL Different colours, different stamps, etc. -- but a great sketch is dying to be mass produced! And when it comes to masculine cards -- a GREAT card is hard to come by, so why not?!!!
On to my card:
The cardstock is from a Michael's pack. The border is from a Colorbok paper pack I won awhile back. I love all shades of brown and this Paper pack was my favourite from Colorbok so far! Beautiful papers!!! (I only have scraps left, but that was perfect for this card, as all I needed was a scrap). :) The square stamp is from the Dollarama -- I haven't found a whole lot of uses for it yet, but I do love it for Masculine cards. And finally the two sentiments are from the Upsy Daisy stampset I borrowed from a friend.
I love how all these different products work together. :) And yes, I am definitely mass producing this card!! I love it! :)
