Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today and I wanted to show you the envelope that I made for a masculine type of present. You can always put there either the gift card or some money.


when it comes to the decoration of the masculine works, I always look for the chipboard, some meat embellishments, die cuts using either kraft or black yardstick. I love to add some black splashes to the cards.

Again, Nyhavn personally for me is a collection with a masculine touch, what do you associate it with?

Have a lovely weekend,

Masculine Cards

Welcome, dear Maja Design fans, to our blog :)

Do you celebrate Boy’s Day in your countries? In Poland this holiday is relatively “young”, but it’s already become quite popular among youngsters, and especially schoolboys eagerly await it 😉 Being constantly reminded of the day, which comes on September 30th, by my own young men 😉 I decided to make some masculine cards for today’s post.


For the cards I returned to one of my favourite collections, Vintage Romance, which contains the most gorgeous masculine images :) And they are so easy to cut out and arrange:


I used a small image of a gentleman and a blue card and mounted them upon a vintage ad that I made to look like a post stamp. I completed the desing with a metal charm:


For the first card I used some elements I die-cut from metallic gold cardstock – they look like sheets of metal and really add a masculine touch and make a great background for cut out images:


I think metal embellishments can really make a project look masculine. Therefore for my second card I used metal gears and attached them to the card with nail-like brads:


I also added some stamping here and there:


I cut a tag shape from one of the papers to add various patterns as bacgkrounds for the images:




Stamps: the ScrapBerry’s,; dies: Joy Crafts, Rosy Owl; brads: Rayher; metal charms: RetroKraftShop


I must admit masculine cards are always difficult for me, but with Vintage Romance the task was nice and pleasant :) And what’s your favourite Maja collection for masculine projects?
