” . . . And may their first child be a masculine child!” Luca Brasi (The Godfather).
Sometimes creating a masculine card can be a challenge for paper crafters. However, I find them to be some of my favorites. The lines are clean and they can be either neutral (like today’s black and white) or colorful. I love mixing a bold color like Pumpkin Pie with neutrals like Basic Gray and Whisper White for a modern look!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- Masculine or feminine, black and white is always a classic.
- I used the Stampin’ Up! Squares Collection Framelits Dies to create the Whisper White frame.
- The sentiment from Label Love can be cropped with precision using the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Label Punch. SAVE 15% when you buy Label Love and the coordinating punch together. Label Love Wood-Mount Bundle or Label Love Clear-Mount Bundle.
- The frame is popped up on skinny bits of Stampin’ Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.
- Stampin’ Up! Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack provided the fun mix of black and white designs, including the chevron pattern for the envelope liner.
- I used the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Liners Framelits Dies to crop the perfect liner insert for my Whisper White Medium Envelope.
