Masculine and Feminine Biggest Wish Card

Don't reinvent the wheel when creating "dude" cards.  You can easily take a layout you like and "man it up" for the guys in you life.  Keep the following in mind to create easy masculine cards-

  • Use a more masculine stamp set.
  • Choose less feminine colors.  Think stronger/deeper colors.
  • Designer Series Paper with a plaid or strip pattern will add a pop of interest.
  • Go ahead and add embellishments. Just use a different type like enamel dots and twine.

This card is a perfect example of a feminine card.  Using the Biggest Wish stamp set, I stamped on a piece of the gorgeous Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper and mounted it to a Magenta Madness card base.  I added Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon and 2021-23 In Color Jewels.  This is a very simple and easy card to make.  The Designer Series Paper does all the work.


Now, let's take the same layout and "man it up" for a masculine card. 


Following the above  guidelines, I still used the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper, just a piece with darker colors.  My greeting was stamped using Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce inks.  I skipped the ribbon, but still added some bling with the Genial Gems to tie in the hint of gold in the Designer Series Paper. Easy-peasy masculine card.

Handsomely Suited Birthday

Products from the Handsomely Suited Suite make it simple to create masculine cards.  I used the Handsomely Suited stamp set and Suite & Tie dies (purchase as a Bundle and save 10%) to create this easy "guy" card.  Love the paisley print in the Well Suited Designer Series Paper.  The greeting was stamped with Basic Gray ink onto Basic White cardstock and popped out using the Rectangle Stitched dies.


 I also used a piece of the Well Suited Designer Series Paper to cover the envelope flap for some added zing.

If you need any stamping supplies, I would be happy to be your demonstrator.  Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or email me if you have any questions.
