A masculine touch

September 30, 2009 at 11:57 am 5 comments

You know it’s true – most stampers are women and we tend to be drawn to more feminine images.  But what to do when you need a masculine card?   You may choose to go with a sports themed card, however sometimes that just does not fit the bill.

Falling leaves masculine

I set out to make something more masculine and saw photo of a man in a grey suit, white shirt and red tie – perfect inspiration!

This is a large square card and I started with grey paper, cuttlebug embossed with the diamond pattern.  The leaves and sentiment (from the Falling Leaves set) were stamped on Flourishes Classic white cardstock with palette ink – charcoal.  The pop of red was just some scrap red paper and thought it, along with a ribbon slide was just enough to color to add interest to the card, while keeping the masculine feel.

Please stop back here on Saturday for my World Cardmaking day post!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Nancy, I love red and gray together, and the way you combined it here is just awesome! I also love seeing the leaf stamped without coloring. Sometimes it really is the best way to let the beauty of the drawing shine. That’s one of my favorite CB embossing folders, too.

    thanks for the masculine card inspiration. I am always trying to think of cards that are not so “girly”. When you are “girly” what else are you supposed to think about? Thank you for getting out of the box for those of us that are blocked.
