I have been thinking about masculine cards this week. I don’t know if it is because my husband’s birthday is in a few days and Valentine’s day just after that. Of if it because my daughter, Alex, is in Australia for the next few months and living with just Phil and Liam makes me feel outnumbered at times.
Whatever the reason, I know the perfect stamp set for making masculine cards – Moon Lake. Add the Adventure Bound designer series paper stack and the possibilities are endless.
When making cards for men, I try to follow a few simple rules:
– Use darker colors
– Stick with patterns like plaids and argyles
– Keep embellishments to a minimum and when you do add them use natural items like wood and burlap
Each of the cards uses one of these rules to show you how easy masculines cards are to make. Enjoy!
I like to use darker colors like blues, grays and browns for my masculine cards.
This card highlights patterns like chevrons, plaids and argyles.
For this card, I used lots of naturals like burlap and wood. These wood buttons are now retired unfortunately.
