Masculine Cards


First, a little business. Just wanted to let you know that I made some changes and you can now easily sign up HERE to receive emails whenever I post, or to add me to your feed reader, like Google Reader. If you already get my posts via email, you are set – no need to do again. Thanks!

Moving on…

I know a lot of people say they struggle with masculine cards – I know I often do. So I thought I would share a couple I have done recently. This first one is very similar to one I did that can be seen in the most recent issue of Creating Keepsakes. It would be great for a guy or to donate to the Operation Write Home folks. Uses lots of Hero Arts, including THIS great stamp set…

And here is another that was a big ol’ reject from Paper Crafts. (Yes, we Go To Gals get rejected too! It is part of the process.) Used THIS cute set from Lawn Fawn. All the socks are from the same stamp – I just doodled different patterns on them. A great way to get more from your stamps…

The best part about masculine cards? You can usually just change the colors to feminine and do the exact same card for a gal. Easy peasy.

Be back soon!
