A Quick Masculine Card


Yesterday afternoon I met up with a fantastic group, all ages and genders, for a Stampin’ Up! workshop. It was pouring outside, so the perfect day for crafting. The hostess had requested that I demonstrate a masculine card, something suitable for her son’s ‘impending 40th birthday’.

Well, as many crafters will acknowledge, a masculine card can be one of the toughest to come up with, and I have to admit to pulling my hair a bit on Friday designing this one. 

And I’m pleased to report that it went down a treat – in fact, the hostess wondered if it was even too good for her son! I love the colour combination of Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake (inspired by a teddy’s jersey in Pumpkin Patch!), and the sentiment from the Word Play stampset was perfect for this. An adhesive rhinestone to finish (who says bling is just for the girls?), and it was job done! 

If you’d like to invite some friends over to enjoy an afternoon/evening of creativity and fun, then contact me today. I’d love to come and show you how easy it is to make handmade cards and gifts filled with love.

    Nothing like a bit of pressure to bring out the design star in you. Great card Bron – I can see why they were so pleased.
