When it comes to creating a masculine card, do you inwardly cringe and maybe pull a funny face?
I know I struggle a little with ideas and I don't think I'm alone.
But as I have found in the past, Eastern Palace Specialty DSP certainly comes to mind for a masculine card.
I wanted something simple and quick to make and this card is just that - quick and simple; but it does have an elegant style in its simplicity.
I've made a Dapper Denim card base and matted with Very Vanilla and a piece of the dapper denim/gold foil DSP. Then I cut two scalloped circles in Gold Foil and the DSP, and a regular circle for the birthday greeting out of VV. The greeting comes from the 'Special Greetings' stamp set and I have used the matching sentiment inside the card.
I added a 1/2" strip of the DSP on the left-hand side before I stamped the sentiment, so it was centred.
So, one quick, simple and easy masculine card made; not so difficult when using the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP and lovely greeting and sentiment stamps.
You've just got to love Stampin' Up! They make everything so easy with their great products.
If you would like to purchase any of the products that I used to create this card, I have a 'Shop With Me' button on the right hand side of my blog.
If you're in Australia and don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I'd be more than happy to help you with any questions you may have about the company; just send me a message.
Until next time.....
Stay happy and stay crafty! 😊
