Welcome to the We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop - Everything Masculine

Do you get "stuck" creating masculine cards?  It seems we have plenty of ideas for feminine cards, but hit a brick wall when it comes to creating masculine cards.    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.

For this masculine card I used Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  Yep, very feminine Designer Series Paper, but this collection has a very bold and deep color stripe - Designer Series Papers has TWO sides.

 The Handsomely Suited stamp set was my number one choice to create a masculine card.  I also used the new Basic Borders dies to create a unique card front.  I used the die on the front of the cardstock and then added a piece of DSP on the inside.

I really like the greeting in this set and changed it up to make a birthday card.

I used the same design/layout to create a feminine card.  Again, I picked a feminine stamp set.  The Dressed to Impress stamp set, All Dressed Up Dies, Hand Penned Designer Series Paper and the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.
