It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week we ask you to make a masculine card. Yep, make a card for a boy or man, or make it really tough and make one for a male teen. I dare you.
When I need a masculine card, I go for patterned paper. This time I used my still-out (ahem) MME Oxford Lane papers to make this:
It's brighter than most "masculine" cards, but you know what? I'm kinda tired of brown and other traditional "male" colors. Also, I know guys who don't fish, hunt, camp, go to the gym, work with tools, or even like trees, all of which are traditional male images. So I went with stripes and BRIGHT!
This card was more difficult to make than it looks, mostly because that piece of striped green paper is a diagonal stripe and I had to focus my brain on trimming it to make the stripes go in a different direction.
Also, that twine? I usually try so hard to get the different colors lined up, and I inevitably fail. For this card I twisted the three together on purpose to get a more blended look, and guess what: they are perfectly aligned. I can't win for trying.
Now it's YOUR turn to make a masculine card. Don't forget to come back to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!
