Hello friends! I know I skipped yesterday because it's always Heartfelt Creations on Wednesday but today is another day in my series of Creating for Men! Today I have a fun masculine card I created using Tonic Studios products along with more of the BARC Cherry Wood Paper from ARC Crafts. My card today uses the 73E Silhouette Scenes Groom Die Set. I am not making a wedding card but I thought that the silhouette of the groom would be perfect for a masculine birthday card. What do you think?
This card measures 6x6”. To create this card, I cut a piece of 12 x 12” black cardstock in half and folded it to create the base. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 “. Then I got busy die cutting! First I die cut the groom silhouette from black cardstock. Using the Tonic Funky Glue pen, I coated just the groom portion of this die cut and sprinkled on Nuvo 706N Charcoal Glitter. I also die cut another portion of the 73E Silhouette Scenes Groom die set from the BARC Cherry Wood Paper. Behind this die cut, I added a piece of newsprint paper. Once my groom was dry, I started assembling the card. I added some white/black twine around the cherry wood die cut and then adhered it in the middle of the white cardstock. Then I glued the groom on the left side of the cherry wood die cut so that it look liked the groom was leaning against the wood. I die cut 1180E Musical Notes Die from the BARC Cherry Wood Paper and added those as shown. Then I used some typeface letter stickers for my sentiment. Here is a closer look at the card.
I think this card would be great for any aged guy in your life, don’t you? I really like how the silhouette of the groom can be used in so many different ways plus he looks like he is just leaning against that wood paper, doesn't he? I really think that the ARC Crafts BARC Cherry Wood paper is a must-have for your masculine projects! Check out the ARC Blog to see the other projects they have created with Tonic Products
