I often hear I’m in the minority of those who truly enjoy creating masculine cards.  How about you?  The key is to keep the elements simple and not be afraid to add a shot of color.

I used this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO385) for my design.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • For the first time, I broke out Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (sized at 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ for card making) on both the card (plaid) and envelope liner.

  • Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack is a fabulous the mix of masculine and organic (SO on trend right now) patterns.

  • My “shot” of color for this masculine card is Island Indigo, a handsome contrast to Basic Gray and crisp Whisper White.

  • It’s new!  Stampin’ Up! Lovely Amazing You (140594) is this month’s photopolymer (clear) stamp set release.  I adore the font, sentiments, simple envelope and feather images.  See more Stampin’ Up! photopolymer stamps.

  • Sizing it up!  The plaid pattern measures 1 7/8″ x 4 1/2″.  The Island Indigo card stock measures 3″ square.  The diagonal piece of Basic Gray is 1 1/2″ wide.
