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.
