I had some of the 24/7 papers on my desk and decided to make a couple of masculine birthday cards. I find using stamps with bold/graphic sentiments really help me to create cards with a masculine feel. I also like using bright colours and geometric patterns too. Some black ink helped to define the edges on my papers and also adds to the masculine feel of the card.
I made one card, and then this card came together pretty quickly as I decided to use a similar layout to the card I made using the Vintage Bliss papers. I used a tag that already had the blue/grey background (one I had done previously using distress stains) along with some stickers from the 24/7 sticker sheet, a wood veneer star, some washi tape and black twine. I think it gives a really different look although the basic layout is very similar to the vintage bliss card.
Thanks for stopping by,
