It’s a challenge to make masculine cards. Ribbon? Nah. Flowers? Nope. More is more? Huh uh. Less is more.
This is Not My Way. But I have challenged myself this year to make more cards that are suitable for men. It’s taking some time, but I’m getting there:
- Oh Hello and Beyond Plaid stamp sets
- Naturals Ivory, RIver Rock and Always Artichoke card stock
- River Rock and Always Artichoke FFIP
- Metallic Brads
- Essentials Paper Piercing Pack and Pokey Doodle (aka paper piercing tool)
- Large oval punch
- Sponge daubers
Did you see those three brads? There is no way on God’s Green Earth that I would be able to line those up so symetrically without Stampin’ Intervention in the form of the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. Some things I can do, and some things I cannot. Eyeballing straight lines? I cannot.
That Oh Hello stamp set with the big, blocky font works really well for masculine sentiments. Stampin’ Up!, we need Happy Birthday in that font, OK? Imagine it!
