Masculine cards can be tricky, especially masculine Valentine cards! Here are a few of my attempts. The first two were inspired by a card I found on pinterest by Ann Greenspan.
These both use the Little Pickup stamp set from Honey Bee stamps and inkpads from Catherine Pooler.
Has anyone found a Happy "heart" day sentiment? I had to do stamp surgery to create the sentiment above. I really like it for guys' cards but it's tricky to get lined up.
The card below was inspired by Birgit's beautiful red, silver and white Valentine card. My teen-age grandson likes red so I toned it down a bit by using fired brick, black soot and walnut stain Distress Oxides.
Then I got on a "love you more than bacon" kick with this sentiment from Avery Elle's Simply Said: Love sentiment set. I figure most boys and men will think that's pretty funny. The dogs are from Crazy Dogs by Tim Holtz. The other sentiments are from Simon's Love and Quotes set and Simon's You Matter backgound stamp.
Hope these will get you in the creative mood and give you some inspiration for masculine cards.
When not quilting, I can be found creating and making pretty things. This page is where I'll share my experiments and discoveries in hopes that you'll try expressing your creativity!
