Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

Posts tagged ‘Masculine’

You might think I’m nuts!

I really like making masculine cards! I know it’s a struggle for some, but maybe because I was a tomboy growing up and glitter and flowers are not something I tend to use a lot I tend to enjoy making cards for guys! That’s not to say I never struggle, it just means that usually it’s not too hard for me.

And, with fun files from The Creative Pointe, it’s even easier and more fun! Honestly, there were so many choices for files to use I really had to think about it! In the end I chose the DAD Wrench. I know quite a few dad’s this set would be perfect for, take a look:

Being someone who thinks they understand what men like, I have a ton of great metallic papers to choose from. So I just got busy embossing and cutting them up and this is what I ended up with:


In case you can’t tell, the embossed background is a very reflective silver paper (from Colorbok – the embossing folder is from Darice). I love the texture and metallic look it gives the card, believe me in person it’s amazing. Next up is the frame from Fancy Pants (a RAK from a friend – thanks, Barbara!) Then the wrench and nuts are cut from a flat colored silver cardstock and a cross-hatched silver cardstock (both from Recollections.) The card base is made with Authentique paper – I love the denim look!

That about wraps up this card! I hope you are inspired because the next challenge at the Creative Cutting Challenge is Father’s Day! I’d love to see what you make!

If you’re here when this post goes live a very happy Memorial Day to you. I can’t express with words my gratitude to those who gave and lost their lives in pursuit of freedom. My thanks go out to all those who have a loved one who died serving our country.

Thanks so much for stopping by! It makes me smile reading your kind comments, so please do leave a word or two below!
