Male Card

March 16, 2013

As you know making male cards is not my strong point.  I think it has to do with coming from a family of all girls and only having two daughters of my own.  I also think that there are only a limited amount of stamp sets that have a male theme.  There are hundreds of sets with flowers and even lots of children themes but not many for the guys.  So when I saw Dapper Dad in the current Seasonal Catalogue I just had to have it.  This is a card that I created for my class at Beachmere.

0438I started with Basic Black card and cut the front panel down to 5cm (2″).  I used the Anywhere Glue Stick to cover a piece of Whisper White card and then attached aluminium foil making sure that the shiny side was visible.  I trimmed the foil down to the size of the card and then embossed it using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and attached it to the inside of the card.  I embossed a small panel of Real Red card using the same embossing folder and attached it to the front of the 5cm section.  I cut Whisper White card using one of the Ovals Collection Framelits and stamped the shoe image using Stazon Jet Black ink044 I cut an oval one size larger from Basic Black and attached the shoe panel to the centre.  I used Sticky Strip only under the left hand side and attached it to the card front over the Real Red embossed card.  I cut another Whisper White oval the same as the one for the shoe and stamped the birthday greeting from the Delightful Dozen stamp set again using Stazon Jet Black ink.   I attached this inside the card making sure that it is hidden by the Ovals on the front when it is closed.  I also added a small panel of Whisper White card on the inside so that there was somewhere to write a personal note.

I think this is a great masculine card.  Using aluminium foil is a fantastic way to get a manly feel without going to a lot of expense.  Let me know what you think.

Bye for now Kris.

    This is great. May have to case this one. I find male type cards difficult to design. Don’t know why 🙂 This one just fits the bill 🙂 TFS

    I use foil a lot in my Friday’s class Kris & must say the end result is always so different. You have done a fab job on this card & the ideas have started flowing for this stamp set. TFS
