Hey guys! I wanted to pop in and share a set of cards that I made my Dad for Christmas. Masculine cards can be a challenge, but Visible Image has a ton of great "manly" stamps. =D The car was stamped in brown pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I outlined the car with a gray marker to add a little dimension. I did the same with the sentiment, except with black ink. Once all my stamping was done, I used Distress Ink to ink up the edges, and then adhered my card fronts to black card bases. So, a few tips for masculine cards... Use mostly neutral colors. Most guys over 30 aren't big fans of hot pink and lime green. lol Keep your cards simple. Guys don't need/want a bunch of ribbons and glitter on their cards. =P Add some masculine stamps to your collection. I bet you'll use them more than you thought you would!
