Masculine cards are not the easiest to create, are they? Avid paper crafters love to include all kinds of stuff with embellishments, but then we deal with the card being too “fru-fru”. Being an embellishment person, I love to use bling and ribbons so this is definitely me. But then we try to compensate by leaning towards the minimalist approach, which then takes on the descriptions of blah, boring, and plain. Our masculine stamp sets are pretty one sided as well. If your guys are not into gardening, sailing, or tools we got some problems here. But I believe Stampin’ Up has addressed our problems with masculine cards by creating the suite He’s The Man!!!
An Awesome Suite For All Guys!
So the embellisher that I am still had to add twine and gems, didn’t I? But instead of a bow I chose to go with fraying the twine ends using my take a pick tool pointer to separate the strands. And for the gems – I used the rustic metallic adhesive dots! Got my embellishments in WITHOUT the “fru-fru” didn’t I? And you know what??? I only used one stamp for the inside of the card! There is no stamping on the card front!!!
