A Masculine Card

by - October 25, 2011

My sister asked me whether I could make her a 'happy anniversary' card for her husband and I immediately said yes. I'am not very good at cards and I thought this would be a good 'practice' for me. :) After a couple of minutes it hits me that the card is for a 'guy'. hmmm.. that was tough. And then I remembered that the next Young Crafters Unite challenge was to make a 'masculine' card. I had read about it on Britta's blog.  

The card is done and I'am still not sure whether it is 'masculine'. But I'am entering the challenge anyways. Atleast I will get a visit by Britta. teehee. Britta, if you are here - I'am a HUGE fan of your video tutorials! You rock!!

I used a sheet music background patterned paper that came with SC Field Guide Kit. Distressed the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. On a different pattern paper I stamped the background with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink - the stamp is from Hero Arts. I've been wanting to use it since I bought it couple of weeks back. Once dry, I distressed the edges with the same ink. Made a tag using some scrap paper and Shabby Shutters Distress Stain, wrote 'happy anniversary' myself (I still have no sentiment stamps!!). Then used a brad that came with the field guide kit.

So, what do you think? Is it masculine enough or is it too girly?
