Do you struggle with masculine cards?  Yes, masculine cards seem to be a problem for many stampers. Including me!  While searching Pinterest, for some ideas, I came across a cute card by Rachel Tessman. I liked the scored lines above and below the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I changed the colors, layout and added the pearls to my design.  Thanks, Rachel!

For a slightly different look, I turned the piece of Wood Textures DSP over and used the other side.  Yup, I like it, but I think I prefer my original card.  What do you think?

SU! colors used on this card:

 

Cutting and Scoring Instructions:  Basic Black (card base) 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″, Basic Black (layer behind Wood Textures DSP) 1-1/8″ x 3″; Very Vanilla (inside card) 4″ x 5-1/4″, Very Vanilla 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″; Early Espresso 3″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 3/4″, 7/8″, 2-1/4″, 2-3/8″, and 2-1/2″; Wood Textures DSP (front of card) 1″ x 3″ and (inside of card) 1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

On my video, I used the Stampin’ Trimmer to score the Early Espresso card. Hopefully, you can see by using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool I can achieve a deeper score, which I like much better!

Sometimes it is challenging to create masculine cards. I think the monochromatic color scheme and simple stamping lends itself to a beautiful and very different masculine card.

I used the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Guy Greeting stamp set for the inside of this card…

Your essential tools for making this project are Versamark Pad, Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Spritzers, Aqua Painters, and of course the NEW Brusho Crystal Colours.

Just by sprinkling a heavier amount of Brusho in a few areas and spreading the color out with my Aqua Painter,  I was able to achieve this great color variation.  My only disappointment was not being able to use my favorite Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker.  When trying to use it, it continued to move the Brusho color and I was already happy with the results.  So, no Wink of Stella on this card.

I do hope you will take a leap and give this great new product a try!  I am absolutely LOVING it and I know you will too!
