Masculine Cards

One Of A Kind

The other day I pulled out leftover scraps I have of  Graphic 45 collections when I created a card for a challenge I participated in. Since them it seems all I want to do is make cards! I don't usually make many masculine cards because I don't really have many stamps that are "masculine" related. I found this image sheet from the "A Proper Gentleman" collection in my stash and then went through my stamp sets. I found a few that seemed to work with the images. I just started with the three cards I'm sharing today, but I can probably make about 17 more! When I do, I'll be sure to share them.

For this card I used an embossing folder called Whimsy from Lifestyle Crafts. I chose to use Tim Holtz Kraft-Core cardstock from the Nostalgic Collection by Core'dinations and then sanded it to bring out the kraft color. The image and patterned paper behind it are from the "A Proper Gentleman" collection from Graphic 45. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Stamps called All Occasion CL272.

Birthday Wishes

I love red plaid! The image is from the "A Proper Gentlman" collection but the red plaid patterned paper is from the "Commuique" collection by Graphic 45. I ran the background paper through my Sizzix dots embossing folder. The stamp set from Hero Arts is called Birthday Messages - CL139. I used a Fiskars ticket punch on the corners of the patterned paper and a We R Memory Keepers Tab punch on the cardstock for the sentiment. The black pearls are from Queen and Co.

let's go for a ride 

This card uses the same embossing folder as above from Lifestyle Crafts and the same Core'dinations Cardstock except in black. Patterned paper is again from the Graphic 45 "A Proper Gentleman" collection. Gems are Metallic Decor from Hero Arts as well as the stamp I used for the sentiment. This one is called Joy Ride CL481. All base cardstock is from PTI.

I will be pinning these to my "Cards & Inspiration" board on Pinterest. If you love cards check it out! I pin cards I find from blogs I read and other boards I come across on there. I'm sure you'll find loads of inspiration!
