Masculine Cards

Hi everyone!  Thought I'd  show you some masculine cards I've made. Feminine or girly cards are so easy to do, you just pick the colours and add flowers and swirls and butterflies, but masculine cards I find more difficult because there is not a lot of embellishments that you can use although I must admit companies are getting better at producing more masculine embellies.

This card was for my eldest son.  He's an avid gamer as well, loves Dragons, Sword and Sorcery, etc.  Bit like his Mum actually.  I've had the mesh in my stash for quite a while but could never work it into a project until this card. I'm quite pleased with the look of it.  The dragon and the shield I downloaded from the net, the swirls are a die-cut and I made the little banner from a strip of paper.

 This is the card I made for my brother.  He's a bachelor so I felt the pin-up was quite appropriate.
Distressed the edges of the papers and put a pocket behind the main image for the Birthday tag.
I coloured the tattered clock (love this die, I use it a lot) with a black stamp pad.

 Last, but not least, is the card I made for my eldest grandson.  He loves Metallica so I downloaded pictures of their guitars and picks.  The papers are from my stash and I distressed them with Versa Color charcoal.

Punched out the label from kraft card, distressed the edge, stamped the greeting on it and attached the small charm.

That's all for now.  Thank you for visiting and God Bless.
