Masculine Birthday Card using Stampin’ Up!s Guy Greetings

Hello Friends,

Who struggles creating Masculine cards for the men in your life? Well, I know I certainly do and so I have made some cards to store away for when I need them!

This card uses the Guy Greetings stamp set in the current Annual catalogue. I quite like these shoes and feel that they can be used for anyone who may be a businessman who wears a suit for their day job, or anyone with a little style! lol

Father’s Day Card using Stampin’ Up!s Guy Greetings

Hello Friends,

While I wait for my new Holiday catalogue goodies to arrive, I have some time to focus on some Masculine cards with Father’s Day coming up next month. What better time to make a start on these before the Holiday catalogue goes live on 1st September and we will forget all about Father’s Day, lol.

Hats off to You, Masculine Open Panel card with tutorial

Hello Friends,

On Saturday at my class, we focused on Masculine cards with Father’s Day coming up next month. This card I am sharing with you today, is an Open Panel Card!

(you may have received a post already about this last week, but I hadn’t finished writing the post and WordPress was playing funny buggers with me, so here it is again, with all the details)!

The images were stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Smoky Slate ink. We used some of the retired DSP from the Occasions catalogue, as it was perfect for our masculine project. The base card is Basic Gray cardstock.

The card itself was quite simple to create. Here is how I did it:

I began with half an A4 sheet (29.7 x 10.5cm) folded in half. I cut off the bottom panel measuring 5cm (2″). Then I cut it again allowing for a 3.5cm (1-3/8″) gap in the centre of the card.

The large Gray panel measures 6.5cm x 10.5cm, the Vanilla is 6cm x 10cm

The medium Gray panel is 4.7cm x 7cm, the Vanilla is 4.2cm x 6.5cm

The Sentiment Gray panel is 7.5cm x 1.5cm, the Vanilla is 7cm x 1cm

DSP: 10cm x 6cm & 10cm x 4.5cm

Once you have done all your stamping and mounted those pieces onto the Gray matt pieces of cardstock and added your DSP to the top and bottom panels, hold the bottom panel lining it up with the base of the card so you can add the centre panel. Make sure you only add adhesive to the top and bottom sections of this panel. Then add the other two panels to your card. I also added some Vanilla cardstock to the inside of the card and stamped the hats image in the bottom right corner!

Here are two more of this same style card!

Guy Greetings

Dear Crafters,

First of all Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends out there!

Today is my dad’s birthday, lucky him always celebrating on a public holiday, and we are getting together for a special celebratory lunch.

I made this card for him using the Guy Greetings stamp set in the Occasions catalogue.  I got this in photopolymer for only $44.95 for all of the 22 stamps below:

Anyway, this is what I created with the stamp set, using the classic car as my main image. I stamped it in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake card stock and sponged the edges of all pieces of card stock.

Guy Greetings

The used the circle framelits to cut the circles. I embossed the middle darker circle for a bit of texture, as it was too plain beforehand and I wasn’t happy with it lol.

I also added some ribbon which helped finish it off.

The DAD sentiment I stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The circle with the car image I added with dimensionals.

Guy Greetings

I would love you to comment below with your thoughts on this card.
