I am participating in a Masculine Birthday Card swap over at Scraps of Color. The challenge was not to use any bling on the cards. I went through 3 different layouts before I decided to mass produce this card. This is the one that I proud to share with others.
I used the French Prep paper pad from Colorbok because of the darker tones. Actually Hubs chose this pack out of the three that I had originally thought would be great for a masculine card. I used the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge to create the top note tag. I decorated the inside of the cards in three different ways because the paper pack only comes with two sheet of each design. So I was a little limited in my quantities. Though I like all three of them, I think this first one is my favorite.
This one is Hubby's favorite inside.
This was the most challenging card I have ever made. Masculine cards are so difficult for me but I was so glad that I took this challenge and kept at it until a was created that I liked enough to share.
Well this is all for today's project. I think I should keep working on masculine cards. Maybe I will create one manly card a week until I make them in my sleep. We'll see.
Thank you all for stopping by today. I always enjoy spending some time with you. I will see you all next time.
