I was in a bit of a panic last Friday when I realized I hadn't made a card for my husband's birthday on Saturday. After taking a deep breath, I grabbed Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for today to whip up a very simple masculine card. Click and scroll for more of my Stampin' Up! Masculine Card Ideas.
- I adore those little gifties in the birthday stamp image (Hostess Rewards Happiest Birthday Wishes). I inked the entire stamp with a Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad.
- Next, I used a Stampin' Up! Blender Pen to remove the Chocolate Chip Ink from the rubber of the left and right gifts. They were re-colored with Pool Party and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers. Watch my 1 Minute to WOW Video Tutorial to see this Blender Pen "Eraser" Trick.
- When you are in a crunch, consult the Stampin' Up! Color Coach. I "dialed up" Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi and ran with it. Learn more about the Color Coach.
- A masculine card relies on clean geometry and texture. Yummy Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock is a handsome touch.
- Pool Party card stock gets a linear look with the help of the Stampin' Up! Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. GET THE FOLDER FREE during Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration.
