Making male cards can be a challenge. Romantic and frilly is not what comes to mind when you first think of. Don´t let that scare you off - the use of soft muted colors together with flowers and metal, wood and leather embellishments is perfect for a more masculine card. I made these for Father´s Day using products from Canvas Corp Brands - the cards are also published in their blog.
This card was made by using patterned paper a from 7 Gypsies "American Vintage" together fall colored flowers, metals and cut out details.
The cool hat from Haunt it "Halloween Masks" and the feathers from "Chocolate and Ivory Large Feathers" bring extra dimension and interest to the card. Metal embellishments are a must have on a masculine card.
Fall colors works really well for a card of for a male friend or a relative. The Haunt It might be for Halloween but works really, really well for other projects as well. As on this card The Orange & Black Stitched Diamonds paper and the cut out man from the Halloween Costume paper.
Flowers give the card a festive feeling.
