One layout, two designs. Don't you just love a classic, clean layout that you can use over and over for new card designs? I offered these card ideas with a variety of greetings to cover multiple "man card" occasions, Father's Day, birthday, congratulations, etc!
Choose a stamp set that fits the man in your life. The card on the left has a vintage and elegant feel while the card on the right has a simple and "rough" feel.
The birthday card uses a soon to retire stamp set called Nailed It that you're going to want to grab right away because the matching framelits are already sold out! YIKES!
The congratulation card is stamped using the very versatile Guy Greeting stamp set that should be in your collection already! Not only does it have great images, but it has such versatile greetings included in the stamp set! The best part is the stamp set is also available in wood mount or clear mount!
Basic information for the cards:
Card base is Early Espresso (shown as left fold) 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" folded to create 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base front.
Main stamped piece 3" x 4 1/2" in Very Vanilla layered over Early Espresso 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" accent piece.
Accent Banner 4" x 1" Dapper Denim cardstock
Greeting Banner 3 1/4" x 1/2" or 3/4" wide strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Both cards use a tone on tone stamping (Crumb Cake ink on Crumb cake cardstock) on the accent piece to add a little interest to the background.
Add a little accent ribbon (Real Red) and cut into a banner end or leave it off! You don't need much embellishment on your masculine card ideas!
Give the layout a try! Try a different color combo and different stamp sets to give a whole new feel to the card! Think pink and green with flower stamp sets! Wonder what that would look like?
