Sometimes it’s hard to come up with great “man cards” and I certainly am known for making tons of florals! But over the years I’ve created some masculine cards which I really love and want to share with you today! My first one is made using a very old, retired Stampin Up set called Fly Fishing. I’ve had it for many years and will never get rid of it! I used Stampin Up’s retired Old World Map and Crackle background stamps, Crumb Cake ink, and the images from Fly Fishing. Sponging ink around the edges and roughing them up gives this card a great distressed look! How about that lifted corner with a fishing fly stamped behind it?! 🙂
This card was also made with Stampin Up’s retired Old World Map and a very cool texture stamp which I’ve had for years. The ship image is one I bought from a Facebook stamping group, and I don’t know who made it. I think the little knotted twine gives this an added nautical feel!
Okay, so a beer card!!! I made this for my husband and he loved it! I used Unity Stamp’s Keep Calm- Have A Beer set and embossed it in black then colored the beer with Zig markers. I added Crystal Effects clear glue as a glaze to depict the glass…just wish I’d thought to add beer foam somehow! The sentiment is also from awesome Unity Stamps!
What guy doesn’t love a card with a vintage car?! I found and printed off this map of Vermont, sizing it down to fit my card and used images from Tim Holtz’ set Road Trip. The Chevelle stamp is made by Deep Red Stamps company.
A fun baseball themed card using Stampin Up’s Take Me Out To The Ballgame and assorted texture stamps. The base card was embossed and sponged with ink to make the stars stand out. I love this card!
This card was made especially for my husband who was taking guitar lessons at the time. The sentiment was perfect and the brown metal thingie is something I’d had in my stash for ages! I think it all came together beautifully!
Isn’t this so serenely beautiful?! The main image is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps and I just love it! The base card was embossed with a pine branch embossing folder. I used Stampin Up’s Woodgrain background stamp on the sentiment strip.
Here’s another ship card using the wonderful set Getting There by Tim Holtz! Distress oxide inks make this background so GORGEOUS!! 😀 Note: more aging/distressing/tearing and roughing up! I can’t stop looking at this card!!
Lastly, I’ll end with this cool train card which I copied from one I found on Pinterest! Tim Holtz Getting There train and tickets…I hope you enjoyed my array of masculine cards and are inspired to create some of your own!
