Cards for the Guys

This month's card class will feature cards for the guys - more on the masculine side for colour, paper,  and stamps.  I also decided to add a technique to the class - embossing. 

This card features the emboss resist technique which provides a nice focus on the buildings.  The Superman image is stamped, coloured, cut out and foam tape used to "pop" him off the page.

Supplies:  Superhero Paper Package, Holiday Red Cardstock, Card Word Puzzle and Super Powers My Acrylix, Grey Wool Ink, Clear Detail Embossing Powder, foam tape (all CTMH).

I love the wonderful blues/greens/chocolate colours in the card.  The sentiment is just perfect for the man in your life.  The clock is stamped and cut out.  The man on the bike is embossed with cocoa embossing power, and then popped  with foam tape. 

Supplies:  Victory Paper Package, Outdoor Denim, Kraft, Colonial White Cardstock, Olive and Cocoa Ink, Foam Tape,Cocoa embossing powder,  Olive Mini-Medlies (all CTMH) 

And finally, for this card I sponged the background and then stamped the sentiment and embossed the tree images.  The moon was masked with 1" circle cut from a post-it-note.  I liked how it turned out. 

Supplies:  Whyite Daisy cardstock, Beautiful Things My Acrylix, Sunflower, Autumn Terracotta, Black and New England Ivy inks and Black embossing powder.  (all CTMH)   

I hope you enjoy these cards and they give you some inspiration to create some masculine cards for the guys in your life.

Happy crafting.
