Now and then I challenge myself to make a masculine card! I can tell you I struggle with this! Even if I start with a masculine theme and masculine colours I end up adding sequins or glitter or jewels.
For this card I kept up till the end with the masculine stuff - well, nearly, I have to say. I don't know where these tiny pink flowers came from...
I think My Favorite Things' Sweet Succulents is a good set to start a card for a man - although it would work for a woman, too, of course. I stamped a few of the succulents on alcohol marker friendly paper with black alcohol marker friendly ink (my go to ink is My Favorite Things' Hybrid Ink in Black Licorice. I coloured the images with alcohol markers (surprise, surprise) and fussy cut them. I decided not to got with the pots in the stamp set but to die cut some flower pots from cardstock with My Favorite Things' Perfect Planters.
For the sentiment I chose one that comes with one of the popular Turn About sets by Concord and 9th called Oh Hello Turn About. I haven't tried out the turnabout part of the set yet but I really like the font of tha single stamp - so cute!
I added some ink blending to the background and assembled the card.
Do you struggle to make masculine cards,too? What are your tips and tricks?
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.
