Masculine cards

Hi all.

This month's challenge at Unstampabelles is to make some masculine cards. It can be for any age male. The twist is to write about what you think makes a good masculine card.

For me, I usually make them either very simple or sport themed.  I know that my boys won't give them to their friends unless they are very simple. If  you don't add a sentiment then it can be for any occasion as well. If they are sport based they could be for your child's sport coach or a Teacher.

I've chosen sport based for my example. I also think, you've made all the effort to get all your stuff out, why not make two or three instead of just one. Makes sense, hey?

I've used Graphic 45's Good Ol' Sport papers on a kraft base.

I've used my CM hexagon maker to punch out 1" shapes of the various papers. On the card on the left I inked around the shapes with red, I used green on the card on the  right. I added a banner with twine, plus a Bella Diecut that matched the papers quite nicely.

Why not have a go? Add to your stash of cards. If you don't normally make masculine cards, here is your chance to challenge yourself. This is the prize you can win.


  1. I really love what you did with the hex's and the G45 papers! I am going to have to scrap lift!! thanks for the inspiration!
