The title sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Well check this out…
Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper usually has two sides; one is a bold or dramatic print and the other a small or geometric accent print. I typically chose these prints for my cards.
The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (MFT) All About You. It has three coordinating dies of the word YOU in different fonts. It is a very versatile set.
The metal embellishment were Retired Urban Underground Embellishments from the 2017 SU Occasions catalog. I loved that masculine suite.
The Happy Birthday To was heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The YOU was cut out of Basic Black card stock with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets attached so the die cut is like a sticker when you add it to your card. I use this for all my dies cuts now.
The inside was adorned with another 3/4″ strip of DSP framed with a 1″ piece of Basic Black card stock. I love to bring the front of the card to the inside as well. The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Photopolymer Stamp set. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this font.
I know masculine cards are a bit tougher for many. Remember to look at the backside of your DSP and you might just find the inspiration for your masculine card.
