I have created a series of male orientated cards to share with you over the next few posts. I always find creating cards for the guys much more challenging – it’s a case of out with the flowers, bling and pretty ribbons. Hmmm… so what’s left?!
Going Global of course. The sentiments are a little lovey-dovey but the imagery is set around a travel-space-ish theme. When used with more masculine orientated colours, it makes a good choice for these types of cards.
Here is my first card which uses several items from the Going Places suite – World traveller embossing folder, Going Global stamp set and the Going places Designer Paper Stack.
The secondary sentiment – the one in the background “you are my greatest adventure” is set in a heart shape. I really like the words, but my guy isn’t one for hearts, so I used my Crumb Cake Marker to ink up the words only. What I really like also is the striped cotton ribbon. It has a linen look and I think the style suits masculine themed projects, not too girly at all!
This card is based on this weeks sketch over at Can You Case it? (CYCI#106).
I enjoy playing along with these guys, they have some inspiring challenges.
Check them out.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
Update: February 14 – I’m very pleased to say my project was one of the top picks for this weeks challenge over at Can You Case It? So very excited!
