Curly Label Punches It Up

Stampin up well scripted curly label punch

They're easier than you think.  I often hear a bit of grumbling from my fellow stampers about the challenge of creating masculine cards.  If you think clean, geometric and crisp color combos . . . you're already there!  Click here for my Masculine Card Basics.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • Stampin up curly label punch The Stampin' Up! Curly Label Punch pops out a simple, geometric background when adhered as a pattern (Crushed Curry Textured Card Stock adds a rich touch).
  • I believe  a Masculine card can handle a touch of ribbon . . . Stampin' Up!'s Basic Gray 5/8" Satin Ribbon reminds me of a tuxedo–exceptionally "man" friendly.  I flared the ends for another simple detail.
  • Need a little inspiration?  Click for more of my Masculine Card Samples.
  • Stampin up well scripted hodgepodge hardware When in doubt, layer less.  This Wide Oval sentiment looks clean and
    masculine with just a touch of metal (Styled Silver Hodgepodge
    Hardware).

WAKE EACH DAY WITH A SMILE!

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • Stampin up itty bitty bits Thanks heavens, for little stamps (think "Gigi" and Maurice Chevalier).  Check out the wee bird on the button.  The stamp is from a set of nine little cuties from Itty Bitty Bits, available May 1 in the Summer Mini.
  • Itty Bitty Bits stamps coordinate with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (set of three).  I used the tiny circle punch from the Pack to crop the bird.  Also available May 1.
  • I simply adore a pretty envelope.  I recreated my collage of the Awash with Flowers stamps for the bottom corner of the Medium Square Envelope.  Amazing eye candy when the recipient pulls it from the mailbox!
  • The Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch lives on!  Click for the Occasions Mini Extended Products List
  • Card size:  5" x 5"
