The idea for the geometric and modern look of this card was inspired by a fashion catalog (photo below). I played a bit with my paper scraps and elevated a few for the feeling of floating shapes. It’s also the makings of an easy (Stamping 911 . . . 10 minutes or less) masculine card.
I began with an Old Olive card base. The half circle of Summer Sun was leftover from a previous project. Great to find it a home 🙂 TIP: Try not to over think the positioning of these pieces or the colors used. Soft Sky Textured and the Brocade Blue Square are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I layered 1/4" circles over 1/2" circles for some contrast to all the straight edges. I then added a large oval with the rub-on sentiment (also on dimensionals).
I listened to my readers’ feedback on masculine cards and created an "official" new category just for "boy" cards called "You’ve Got Male." TIP: However, with just an extra floral rub-on, this card instantly gets a feminine touch (maybe even a fun teen card).
