We all need those masculine cards, right? The Well Dressed Sale-a-bration stamp set is great for the men is your life. Today I’m sharing my take on a current masculine design CASE (copy and selectively edit) by Akiko Suduna. It’s my Well Dressed Happy Anniversary card.
The Well Dressed Sale-a-bration stamp set has many images that work great for today’s guy or someone that is old school (or quirky…wink, wink). I paired the necktie, watch and keys with the uber masculine Country Club Designer Paper and super feminine Pressed Petals Designer Paper. See masculine and feminine coming together is awesome!
I was thinking this would make a great anniversary card so I searched through my hoard of stamp sets and found the perfect sentiment by combining two words from the Well Said stamp set. I have not used this set in a while and after this I will keep it on my table. It has TONS of single words and phrases to fit most any occasion. Sweet!
With masculine/guys cards I do my best to not over “sparkle” them. Lol! This is a challenge for me, but I was able to add a bit of sparkle without going over the top. I heat embossed the keys with Silver Emboss Powder and added a trio of the small Metallic Brads. Woohoo!
As you can probably see I did quite a bit of fussy cutting. I wanted to give the design more dimension and popping the fussy cut images does just that. Along with the addition of just a touch of heat embossing and metallic brads brings things up a notch.
I’ve included the color palette that I used for this design. It also includes a touch silver for that all important sparkle. (Giggle!) This color palette along with the designer papers impart a nice masculine feel for the Well Dressed Happy Anniversary card. Thank you very much for stopping by today. Now let’s go and get our fingers inked up and create a some masculine/guy cards! Have a great day!
