Hello friends! Do you struggle with creating cards for those special men in your life? I know it has been a struggle for me as I am definitely a girly artist! LOL I had a blog follower contact me to see if I would create some masculine cards for her husband's birthday. That really got me thinking about the products I use and what did I have that would be perfect for this project. So today I am highlighting the Signature Collection By Sara Davies - Just For Men from Crafter's Companion. But on Tuesday and Thursday of this week, I will also have some masculine cards to share using other products from different companies.
On Amazon Prime Day, I purchased the Silhouette Mint machine and thought this would be a great project to get it out and use it. I found it fairly easy to use but really need to sit down and play just a bit more. Plus I need more stamp "blanks" to create more stamps!
Here is my first project....
To create this card, I used Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men.....this is the Time Piece embossing folder. After embossing a piece of chocolate chip cardstock, I used some metallic rub-on paste to highlight the clocks. I used gold and copper. Plus I used the On Your Birthday embossing folder and just cut out the "happy birthday" and then added more metallic paste. I stamped the "My Dear Husband" onto kraft cardstock using black ink (included with the Mint) and then just cut out the sentiment. I also added some burlap behind the sentiments for more interest.
Here is another card I created........
I used the same On Your Birthday embossing folder plus I a piece of patterned paper from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just for Men - 6x6 Urban Collection papers. This card is more of a clean and quick style but I do like it. What do you think of my stamp? Now I am going to have to find the time to really learn how to use this Silhouette Mint. I am really excited!
Be sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of the week for more masculine projects!
