They're easier than you think. I often hear a bit of grumbling from my fellow stampers about the challenge of creating masculine cards. If you think clean, geometric and crisp color combos . . . you're already there! Click here for my Masculine Card Basics.STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The Stampin' Up! Curly Label Punch pops out a simple, geometric background when adhered as a pattern (Crushed Curry Textured Card Stock adds a rich touch).
- I believe a Masculine card can handle a touch of ribbon . . . Stampin' Up!'s Basic Gray 5/8" Satin Ribbon reminds me of a tuxedo--exceptionally "man" friendly. I flared the ends for another simple detail.
