I FINALLY made a “manly” card! This is really hard for me because by definition, cards are not very manly. Men just don’t care about receiving cards; they probably throw them out 5 minutes after reading them. Not that my husband does that. Nevermind that he can’t because I take them back 5 minutes after he reads them and I save them!
With Father’s Day coming up, masculine cards are the project of the day. This motorcycle stamp, aptly called Motorcycle, from the Stampin Up Summer Mini catalog is perfect for Father’s Day. Most dads love motorcycles, whether they have one or wish they had one.
The card above uses Crumb Cake base, layered with new Cherry Cobbler. The Gray DSP is from Urban Oasis (one of the best collections EVER in my opinion). I stamped the motorcycle in Memento Black ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a Metal Edge Tag. Then, I added 3 small Silver Brads and using Stampin Dimensionals, layered the tag onto a 1 3/4″ Circle Punch of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.
This version uses a different color scheme and different sentiment stamp. The base here is Marina Mist, layered with Crumb Cake and the Urban Oasis DSP. Again, I stamped the image in Memento Black and colored in with Copic Markers. The image was layered onto Marina Mist and attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals. For the sentiment, I used And Many Mower, stamped in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and layered it onto a Scallop Oval punched from Marina Mist.
