Masculine card in red/white/blue


It has been so long since my last post, I apologize. I have been crafting but much less due to Ramadan, but now I am back in the normal swing of life. Which means, I have to try myself in my favourite challenges too. This week the SSS Monday Challenge is about red/white/blue, so I came up with this card:

I am not good at really masculine cards as I am lucky enough to have the sweetest husband ever, who appreciates any type of card I make (ok, I don’t give him pinky flowers). But a friend of mine asked me for a masculine birthday card and I tried to be as man-like as I could. The most difficult part was not to add shimmer 😀


The car image if a Joy!Craft image and the sentiment is from an MFT set. I used Lawn Fawn die inks Blue Jay and Lobster for my stamping. It was enough not to make it shimmery but i couldn’t give up on some stitched details, so I used an MFT die for the strip of red under the focal image. The only embellishment I used were a few matte enamel dots from Doodlebugs.


Simple card, but not bad for the first attempt I think. I will challenge myself further and try to make more masculine cards in the future. I hope you got inspired too.
