Do you run into brick walls when trying to create masculine cards? I do. I find that my stamps, paper and accessories come from what I like, and I am not a man. I like sparkles, lace and the color pink…not the best combo for a guy.
I am done with Christmas cards (they’re even all mailed out!) so I decided to switch gears and make a manly thanks card. I used this Mojo Monday sketch to get my design juices flowing:
I was also inspired by the fact that this week we have a full moon. Here is a closeup of the focal point of the card:
Here is a quick list of all the Stampin’ Up! supplies used for this card:
Stamps: Hardwood, Lovely as a Tree and Six Sided Sampler
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, Old Olive and Soft Sky
Etc.: Banner Punch (Sale-a-Bration sneak peek!), Dimensionals, Linen Thread, Circles Framelits and Stampin’ Sponges
The Hardwood background stamp will be in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions mini catalog in January. I just love it! What do you think?
