For a Boy, a Teenager, a Man

Good morning Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

By common opinion among cardmakers, masculine cards are rather difficult to make. Would you agree? Despite being the only woman in our home, I do struggle when I have to make a card for a man. So once I got into “that” mood, I decided to take advantage of that unexpected mojo and make three birthday cards for three age groups: a baby boy, a teenager and a grown-up man:

For the boy card I used the papers from the Miles Apart collection as the pastel background to a hand-coloured stamped image. I also added a star cut out from one of the mini pad sheets, a plaid ribbon bow, some buttons and a stamed and embossed sentiment circle:

In the card for a teenager I featured the Denim&Friends papers, with a skater image decorated with a metal star charm and a mini flag cut out from a signature strip. I die-cut the sentiment from metallic silver sheet and matted it with a dark navy blue piece to make the whole sentiment pop out:

The last card features the Miles Apart papers again, with a chipboard steampunk heart embossed with various eps for a more rusty look, a metal flower, screw brads and plaid ribbon. I die-cut the sentiment from glitter foam and added some paper flowers too. Can you spot the mini balloons I cut out from one of the sheets? 🙂

 

Here’s the supply list for my cards:

Maja Design papers:

Other: flowers, chipboard heart: Prima; dies: Rosy Owl, CreaLies; metal ger: Mitform; metal flower: Craftmania; brads, ribbon: Rayher; acrylic gems: Scrapberry’s.

 

Do you struggle with masculine cards or do you make them with ease? 🙂

See you soon!

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

Ah, masculine projects! Who finds them easy to make? Even being the only woman in the house doesn’t make me any smarter. But luckily Maja Design has one of the best masculine papers and therefore Deim&Friends is my all-time favourite 🙂 And since we are going to celebrate Boy’s Day soon (in Poland it’s on September 30th), I decided to make some masculine cards.

I was inspired by the Snapshots paper from the collection, in which you can see the torsos, but not the faces – and having a men’s outfits dies in my collection, I thought it would be fun to follow the pattern 🙂 And it was, really, a great fun to put pieces together like in the old days of making paper dolls!

The first card is more elegant and would be perfect for birthday or graduation. I assembled a suit with a shirt and bowtie and placed it upon the background that reminds me of a pattern on my husband’s silk scarf. Then I added some glam with midnight blue glitter on the chipboard sentiment:

The other card would be great for a teenager, a birthday or congratulations card:

I die cut pieces to assemble a casual shirt and die-cut the number in it. Then I added a signature strip with the words “You rock”, a star charm and a sentiment matted with metallic copper cardstock:

And I really like the way the cards turned out – simple, but fun and with a touch of glam, as who likes to shine more than our men? 😉

Here’s what I used:

Maja Design papers:

Other: dies: Marianne Design, Sizzix, Rosy Owl; chipboard: Scrapiniec; string, charm: my stash.

 

What about you? Do you like making masculine projects or suffer if you have to make them?

See you soon!

Congrats

Hello Lenet here , today I bring you this masculine card made with papers from the Denim and friends collection, and some car pictures from the vintage romance honeymoon sheet.

This card can be used for a birth day but also as a congratulations card for someone who just got his drivers license.

In fact I made this one with the intention to play along with challenge  that wanted a congratulations with your drivers license card, but you had to use the given sketch too.

I was so busy making this card I totally forgot about the sketch. Oh wel I just make another one .

Masculine card *Enjoy it*

Hello, dear friends! Evgenia Petzer with you today. I have made another masculine card this time. I really love mixing my tender shabby chic works with these masculine, a bit grungy projects. I prefer to use Denim and Friends collection for these type of works.

some close ups:

I love to add wood elements to my projects, I have covered the chipboard element with the frontage embossing powder.

some black accents in different textures and shapes

I have used the Denim and Friends collection:

Have a great day,
