Masculine Cards

Happy June! Can you believe that it is almost summer? The next following cards were a series of card I made during a Shoebox Swap. As you can see in a few of these cards, I left the sentiment off so that I can go back and add whatever I wish when I am in need of a masculine card. I am sure that everyone is looking for some ideas for masculine cards. I hope this was helpful:

This card here is made using the Chalkboard Technique by stamping with White Craft Ink and then going over the ink with the SU Pastels.

Using the pine leaf, stamp using old olive, by stamping off first onto a scrap and then onto your cardstock. Repeat this several times as well as on the opposite corner. Then take your pine cone and stamp repeatedly in Chocolate Chip over top of your pine leaf. This card is actually a tri-fold card, the photo mount on the top holds the "Happy Father's Day" up. When you undo the photo mount, it flips down and you have another section that flips up to reveal a section where you can write your sentiments, etc.

This is a shirt card. I love SU DS paper and the Sky Blue DS paper does the job! The circle was cut using the collozle and then cut in half. One side of the circle is stamped using the Print Pattern Background Stamp. I love how SU texture paper gives it that added "umpf"!

My last card, using our new star punches. Most of the pieces were inked up using the Canvas Background and then punched out.
