Let's face it, many of us struggle with masculine cards. I think that is because many of the products out in the market tend to be more cutesy, which doesn't always work for masculine cards.
Well today i want to share with you some ideas for those masculine cards using what you probably already have. Like most of you, i have several embossing folders, but they are not necessarily what i grab for often. These make great backgrounds, and still allow me to keep my grungy style when i use specialty paper.
Metal elements are also great add ons for masculine cards as they often offer added embellishments without looking too feminine.
There are also ways to add to a sentiment by layering it on top of a subtle background stamp. This helps take up real estate inside the card when your sentiment is smaller.
You can find detailed instructions over on my YouTube channel where we put together two masculine cards sharing techniques along the way. You can also find these cards in my shop if you are in need of a Valentine Card this year for the man in your life.
