Masculine Cards

Why are masculine cards so difficult for me to make? I certainly like men but cringe every time my customer (sister) asks me to make her a card for a man uugggh!

But hey an order is an order, gotta pay for this addiction some way.. I tried several versions of this idea before I finally found a result I like. I wanted to stamp over a polished stone background. But my background was too dark so after a few tries I gave up and stamped on another piece of cardstock.duke I chose glossy so because my ink didn’t dry right away I was able to sprinkle on some embossing powder and it caught in various places. I liked the effect. dukecu Hope you do to.

White on White

I have an order from a customer; ok my only customer my sister; but she keeps me busy for an anniversary card and a masculine birthday card. When I think anniversary, I think wedding, and when I think wedding I think flowers and I think white.

I have the Tim Holtz flower die so I cut some out of copy paper; yep copy paper. I stacked them together and punched a hole for the brad. Then I sprayed them with spray starch and scrunched them. I created some home made mica spray and sprayed them. I thought I was finished after I stamped love and I was for a few days. That is until I saw LollyChops blog and video on making rolled flowers. Lolly cut hers by hand, but I made mine into an svg and cut them with my cricut!!!anniv card

I rolled the flowers and attached them to the card I thought was finished. That’s what I get for thinking. Hey the cricut was out so why not make a box for this 3D wonder!



I hope my customer will like my creations I sure had fun making them!
