Do you struggle with creating masculine birthday cards? I know this is a common complaint. I have that same difficulty. However, the planning of this masculine birthday card came together quite quickly.
As I had not made a masculine card for quite some time, I was a little apprehensive. In particular, I wanted my masculine birthday card to have a high contrast of colors, a repetition of design, a Stitched So Sweetly die, and a subtle Elegant Faceted gem. So, I gathered my supplies, and much to my surprise, the card almost designed itself. I especially like the pop of color the Cajun Craze cardstock adds.
To provide a little continuity and additional interest to the inside of the card, I added a small strip of the In Good Taste DSP, with a smaller border of Basic Black cardstock. Don’t forget that decorating the inside of your card provides a more cohesive look.
Let’s make a Simply Thankful card. Sometimes we just need to stop and take the time to be thankful for all the good things. With everything that is currently going on in the world, being thankful can be difficult. However, if we take a moment and ponder the small blessings that touch our lives every day, we can become simply thankful.
When I first started on my card making journey, I never decorated the inside of my cards. Despite that misstep, I have learned just as in life, that often the inside is much more important. We choose the right sentiment, write the heartfelt message, and add a little something to reflect the front of our card. These steps make our cards more memorable and often touch the hearts of our recipients.
I love Poinsettias; it’s just that simple. It doesn’t matter what color the bracts (modified leaves) are; white, pink, red to purple, yellow, orange, or salmon. I love them all! Every year I look forward to finding them in the store, purchasing them, and bringing them home with me. They just make me smile.
Isn’t it amazing how the use of the Ornate Layer dies, Scripty 3D embossing folder, and Poinsettia dies really add to the overall look of the card? Such small little touches, however, they really change what could be an average card into something beautiful. Are you adding die cuts and embossing folders to your cards?
