Today I want to share some masculine cards I created this past weekend. With Father's Day fast approaching, I have been thinking about masculine designs.
The first card is a Father's Day card I created for my husband using a Steampunk-ish Theme with Gears and Kraft Colored card.
I used Gear die cuts that I applied Pearl-Ex Mica Powders to for the aged, patina look. To get the powders to stick, I used the Palette Stamp and Stick Glue Pad to apply the sticky glue type substance on the die cuts. I used an old , small, inexpensive watercolor brush to apply the powders and set with the heat tool. I applied micro glaze to the die cuts to ensure the powders would not smudge off.
I used two types of ribbon from my stash and inked everything up with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. This card measures 5" x 5".
This card is for a Birthday, created using some awesome digital images and papers from the Etsy Seller Scrapbookingdom. I used a Border Gear die cut, simply cut from black card. I heat embossed the sentiment. This card measures 5.5" x 4.25" top folding landscape.
Continuing with the Biker Theme, another Birthday Card using more digital images and papers from Scrapbookingdom. These images are so clear and realistic, I'm more than impressed! This is a top folding, landscape card measuring 5.5" x 4.25".
Last but not least, a Gatefold Birthday card with a simplistic design. The card measures 5.5" x 4.25". I'm fond of the color scheme, I really like blues and browns for a masculine card.
That's all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed the post and were inspired to create some awesome masculine cards. Any of these cards would also be great for Father's Day.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
