Masculine Cards

Making masculine cards has always been a challenge for me.  You would think it'd be easy to make a card for a guy because it shouldn't involve much, but that just isn't the case most of the time.  I just try to stick to neutral colors, clean and simple, and avoid the swirls and flowers.  For my "You've Been Crafted" project, I knew I had to make masculine cards so here's a bunch of them.

If you are a card maker, you will recognize the background of this card.  It is part of packaging for a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  I have mentioned before that I keep these sometimes to use on a card.  It gives me something to talk about.

I cheated on the next two cards you see.  The card bases are already preprinted with designs.  They come in handy when I'm in a hurry.

The stamped background you see in the next three cards were received from a background image swap a long time ago.  I finally got to use them.

The embossed background in this card is actually a Fiskars embossing plate from primitive crafting times.  I ran it through my Big Shot and it worked.

Stay safe everyone... 'Til next blog!
