Great Tips Creating Masculine Cards

Great tips creating masculine cards


Do you struggle creating masculine cards? I have to admit it’s my weakest link when creating cards.  It’s probably due to the fact I love anything vintage and frilly, but you can still have the vintage feel when creating a masculine card.  Let me share a few tips with you. 

Great tips creating masculine cards, Stampin' up!

When creating a masculine card try these tips to help you get started:

  • Create a fun fold to capture the wow factor for your guy!
  • While I am absolutely positive my Prince would love rhinestones and pearls try to stay away from the BLING and add more neutral tamed down bling such as Neutral Candy Dots or small punched elements.
  • Create a leather look as shown in the photo above.  Learn how below.
  • Make the card personal.  Create your own stamp using our Undefined product line.  Click HERE to learn more.
  • Keep your color palette neutral.
  • Create a card with humor.

Creating cards for our favorite males doesn’t have to be difficult and let’s face it… if YOU make it they are going to LOVE it!

Creating a Faux Leather look: 

To create Faux Leather as I did on the card above start by using the 2 1/2″ Circle punch with Crumb Cake cardstock.  I gently rubbed ink all over the Crumb Cake cardstock using the Hello Honey ink and a sponge.  I worked in circular motion to create a very wet “leather” look.  You want a nice inked pad when you are creating faux leather.  Let the ink dry.  By letting the ink saturate the cardstock it gives the cardstock a nice “smooth” finish.  What do you think? 


Once the circle was dry I used my paper piercer to create the holes around the circle.  


You may also note that my punched stars are also Faux Leather.  I simply did the same thing above on a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and then punched the stars out.

Have you used the Canvas Creations on any of your projects?   I love this product.  I added a small layer on the front of the card and then I added a large piece on the inside.  I love how this turned out.
