Happy Birthday to a Classic {Masculine Card}

Time for another masculine card. The guys I know like cars, so I knew I would get a lot of mileage out of this stamp set, To a Classic.

I stamped the Baja Breeze card base with the little speedometer from To a Classic in Baja Breeze and Basic Gray ink. The main image was stamped in Memento Gray ink, on Whisper White card stock. Then, I stamped the image again on scrap White card stock and colored the car with Copic Markers. I cut out the car and attached it to the main image with stampin dimensionals.

The white was matted on a piece of Basic Gray card stock. The gray patterned paper is from Urban Oasis DSP (retired). I attached the stamped layer to the base with stampin dimensionals. The white brads are 5/8″ Basic Brads.

Wish Big Birthday Card for Guys

I am not particularly fond of making masculine cards, usually because I find them boring and plain. Men don’t like glitter or rhinestones or ribbon–things I use almost every time I make a card. For this project, I started out by picking colors most guys like, then layered the card stock in a striped pattern, reminiscent of a man’s sweater. The strips are Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, and Tempting Turquoise on a Crumb Cake base.

The stamps are from Bring on the Cake. I stamped the “Wish Big” in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with scissors. Then, I stamped the “Happy Birthday” in Temping Turquoise ink on Very Vanilla, swiping the edges in So Saffron ink. I attached the hand to the card stock with a stampin dimensional and colored in the words with Tangerine Tango marker.

I matted the Very Vanilla onto Tangerine Tango card stock after paper piercing. Along the bottom edge, I added Tangerine Tango Pom Pom Trim. Now, I’ll admit, it’s not very manly, but I had to put my own personal touch on the card somewhere!

Father’s Day Motorcycle Cards

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.
