Masculine Cards Can Be Tricky

I have always struggled to make cards for guys. I am a ribbon and bling kinda girl, and that doesn’t always fit for the men in your life. I find that when I do make them they are so plain and boring. So I have been working with colors and layering, trying to add some wow, through details. This is my first attempt, I think it turned out pretty good. Of course my dad loved it, but he would love anything I made him, macaroni art included.

My Inspiration is from a Christmas card that the talented Marina Grigsby made, found here.

I had to adjust the layout, I prefer landscapes (ie I always mess up cutting portrait bases). I also loved the idea of cutting out part of your image and leaving it floating.

I used two different sets from Stampin’ up. I am also diggin this Simply Chartreuse from PTI. I tried to rough up the edges, but didn’t fully commit. I think next time I would go a bit further and make sure it looks intentional.

As I am sure you will learn, I am addicted to making matching envelopes. I think it just adds that extra touch. Definitely will make a variation of this again.

Thanks for reading,

Jillian
