Hey everyone! Stephanie here and I am SO EXCITED to be here for my first post
on the Neat & Tangled blog!
I put together a masculine birthday card for you today because honestly, I find them the absolute hardest cards for me to make haha. I am terribly feminine in my creations which typically suits me well but when it comes time for me to give a card to a "manly man" (aka my gigantically bearded husband) I almost never have anything on hand. So here is what I came up with!
I started by creating the wreath and hooray sentiment using the Hooray Die. I die cut it twice - once from green cardstock and once from blue cardstock - and then I trimmed the wreath away from the blue one. I layered them on top of each other with some adhesive and lined the back of the wreath with a bit of vellum.
I used the Succulent Journaling Die to create a journaling card which I repeatedly stamped with the wood stamp from the On the Strip 2 set. I'm going for earthy here can you tell lol? ;) And for my card base I stamped a light colored ink with the "celebrate" sentiment from the Just For You set.
I finished my card off with some stitching at the top of the journaling card and I just couldn't help myself and added some sequins as well haha. I made sure to use simple iridescent ones (that I grabbed from the new Sugar Plum set) to not be too girly.
What do you think? Do you have trouble creating masculine cards?
Thank you so much all! Much love!
