Hey there, Sweet friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week so far. It’s Thanh here with some more masculine themed cards. I figured I would continue making more since I received such positive feedback from the last post. You can find the first instalment of Make it Masculine HERE. Ya’ll want more inspiration for making “man cards!”
Let’s review my rules for making masculine cards:
- Keep it SIMPLE
- Use neutral or earthy colors
- Minimal embellishments
- Follow a sketch (if needed)
- Use humor or wit
How adorable is the Stinky Skunk set? He is so cute already on his own, that I don’t even have to do much with this set. I only used one set to complete this card and followed the following rules as I listed above: kept it simple, used neutral colors, minimal embellishments and (lots of) humor. 😉
Since we can’t forget about our little ones, I made a “softer card” that the young men in your lives could use to give one another. The Koala set can be stamped over and over again to create as big or as little of a family as you’d like.
Once again, I focused on the image themselves, used just enough embellishments and fairly neutral colors (mostly grey and white).
If you still struggle with making masculine cards, are there particular techniques you’d like to see me show you? What’s your process with making them? The Sweet sets are very versatile and I hope you’ll take my tips and tricks and use them on your cards!
