Make it Masculine

Do you find it hard to make masculine cards, then I have a recipe for you!
  1. Use primary colors as your main focus
  2. Stamp in black
  3. Make a background stamped in grey
These cards follow that recipe and I feel they can be sent to a man or a woman on any occasion.

I used an Altenew stamp set called Sweet Gingko and stamped a pattern on several square pieces of colored card stock in black Versafine ink. My squares measure about 3 inches 1/4.

To add some interest I then stamped the solid leaf part in a color coordinating with the card stock, so above I used an orange Crisp Ink called Autumn Blaze. The card stock is from Faltkarten here in Germany - use what you have and try and find an ink that goes well with your card stock.

For the background I cut card bases to be 4 inc 1/4 x 8 inches 1/2, they fold to make square cards of 4 inches 1/2.

I stamped a pattern in Gray Denim and I did let that pattern overlap to the back of the card. Then I nestled my signature stamp on the back as well.

All that was left to do was to stamp a sentiment, as you can see I stamped in a couple of different places, not sure which one I like best. Then I glued the stamped panel to the center of the card front and done.

Very much CAS and masculine.
