Good morning, dear Maja Fans, welcome to the blog today ๐Ÿ™‚

Father’s Day has been celebrated in various parts of the world, and in Poland it comes on June 23rd. Therefore for my today’s post I created two cards for the occasion. These are really super quick and easy to make even for beginners ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t mind at all using flowers in masculine projects, but this time I decided not to include a single one. I based both on the Denim & Friends collection.

For the first card you don’t even need any die-cutting machine, I cut all the paper elements by hand.

I layered papers, added some tags and a strip of paper across the card and placed a cut-out image on top. I decorated the card with metal embellishments, studs and a chipboard sentiment, but you could easily replace those with paper elements and handwriting.

If you have a die-cutting machine, the second card would be a piece of cake to make too ๐Ÿ™‚

I layered selected papers in the background and mounted a cut-out image, then added some die-cut stars and a trophy to match the stamped sentiment which says: “Dad, you’re the best”. I finished the card off with drops of liquid pearls and glitter. After all, men love to shine ๐Ÿ™‚

 

And here’s the list of my supplies:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Desig, Crea-Lies; stamp: Lemonade; metal elements: ScrapHobby; string, ribbon: my stash.

 

Thank you for visiting today and see you soon!

Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today!

The day after tomorrow in Poland we celebrate Father’s Day – and for that occasion I have made some masculine cards ๐Ÿ™‚ Even though I’m the only woman in my house, I still find masculine cards a bit difficult, it always takes me more time to make one than with romantic flowery cards ๐Ÿ˜‰ But with fantastic Vintage Romance images of handsome dudes the task is much easier ๐Ÿ˜‰

I decided to use up some leftovers of the Home for the Holidays collection and made these two cards:

The first card is more universal, as the stamped sentiment says “Best wishes” – and so it could be presented on Father’s Day too ๐Ÿ˜‰

I layered two papers in the background and matted the central image with a die-cut gear border and hand-cut tags:

Then I added a metal charm, some vintage brads and acrylic gems to give the card more character and colour ๐Ÿ™‚

The other card is aa birthday card and a vintage car image as the central piece.

Then I literally used up the smallest bits and scraps by punching squares and making a patchwork background ๐Ÿ™‚

I also added some chipboard gears and a metal charm on a piece of plaid ribbon:
