  • 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.

  1. WOW ~ Mary, you never cease to amaze me with your creativity! Love your blog as you always seem to be a step ahead of everyone ~ fabulous work!

  2. Great card! Love the simplicity of it. But unless you want to be guilty of favorites, you’ll have to come up with projects using Larry and Moe Punches!


  3. Such a simple idea with stunning results!! I love this! You are a genius!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  4. I LOVE the idea of using the punch … brilliant! 🙂

    Its funny, I actually have a hard time making girlie cards … maybe its that urban/NYC thing. LOL I tend to use a lot of blues and greens, kraft and chocolate chip in general.

  5. Wow, that is such a genius idea(the curly label punch pattern), I love it. You know what though, it reminds me of a chain link fence, lol, which makes it even better for a masculine card.

  6. That is so awesome. Love it. What a great use of that punch, now I can dust it off and use it for something.

  7. Amazing idea! I love the color combination and had sort of toyed with that idea since I used to have some drapes that had sort of the curry color, gray and then rust mixed in. Anyway, I know my husband would love the card but then again he even likes flowery ones too. Once again, you totally amaze me with your ideas and talent.

  8. Love this punch idea. INGENIOUS! Love your blog… keep the fabulous work coming.

  14. Very nice manly card! I’m going to make this for my brother! His birthday is in May! I never would have thought of using a punch in this way! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Wow! This card is absolutely fantastic…I’ve used the curly label punch for so many things, but never would have thought to do this! Thanks for sharing. ~Melanie
