Hi everyone, and welcome back. I am so glad you stopped by today. I know we are always looking for more masculine cards to make for our guys. My little brother's birthday was yesterday, 30 April, but I did not want him to see his card, so I am posting it today.
5" x 6-1/2" ivory pre-folded card
Authentique Strong Collection 12x12 papers
- Mighty (blue damask design)
- Marvelous (yellow diamonds)
Spellbinders S5-134 - A2 Fancy Postage Edge die
Bella's Best Stamp Paper - white
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Distress Frayed Burlap ink pad
Jayne Nestorenko clear stamp set - Apple of My Eye collection
I used the new Authentique Strong collection papers for this card. I covered an ivory card with "Mighty", leaving just a small margin of the base card showing.
I die cut "Marvelous" using Spellbinders frame die and layered that on top. I always seem to distress ink my edges, and this card was no exception. So I used frayed burlap to distress them all.
I stamped the boy and girl image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of stamping paper, then colored the image with Copic Markers. Again, I distressed the edges with frayed burlap.
After flattening a bottle cap, I added the "you and me" image from the Strong collection and adhered to the top left.
I then stamped "Best Friends Forever" from the stamp set onto a border piece, and die cut using the same Spellbinders die.
I hope you enjoyed my masculine card project today. Since Father's Day is just around the corner, maybe this has inspired you to make a really nice masculine card.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you check back on Friday to see the cute mini album I made for Sin City Stamps.
Until next time, happy crafting!
