Masculine Thanks

Hello there everyone. There is a new challenge starting at The Alphabet Challenge today. The letter is ‘M’ and we want to see your Masculine cards. Here is my card:

You may or may not realise that masculine cards are few and far between for me. I don’t know how to do them, and they aren’t a particular card I frequently make.

As Design Team member for this challenge, I knew I had to do some research – so I went to Pinterest, to YouTube, to Instagram – you name it – I went there. I came to the conclusion that geometric seems to be quite a popular male card layout – so I went with that one.

I hunted through my card stock and found some blue and maroon patterned card from Hunkydory – I’ve had this for quite a while – probably years – and so I decided to work with that. I cut the hexagons out on my Scan’n’cut from the two pieces of card – after playing around with sizing – then played with the pattern and layout.

The grid is from Waffle Flower, and cut into a piece of card which I would class as vanilla – but no clue where it came from and no idea how long I’ve had it – but I didn’t want white – and this seemed quite a good match for the blue and maroon.

The sentiment strip and sentiment itself is from the Concord and 9th Everyday Bouquet die set.

So – do masculine cards excite you? Do they scare you? They scare me – so this challenge was perfect for getting over the fear………I think! 🙂

I hope you can come and join us, and I look forward to seeing your take on the masculine theme.
