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!

Jennifer Snyder here to celebrate Wedding day romance and beauty with Maja Design’s gorgeous Miles Apart collection and coordinating  monochrome collection, Shades of Miles.
I’m in love with the warmth and charm of this collection – perfect for so many occasions.  Here are the papers I used to make the card:

The door die is from Spellbinders and makes a romantic back drop for the chipboard bride and groom, from Creative Embellishments.
The door is also embellished with gems and crystals from Buttons Galore.
