Getting In Touch With My Masculine Side

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Both my uncle and my brother have a birthday in the beginning of May.  I was going through my stash of cards to see if I had anything already made that would be appropriate for either of them.  I showed a few to Ryan to which he replied, "No way."   

I used my new Postmarks set to make this card for my brother, Tom. 

My uncle is a hunter, so I pulled out a long forgotten sticker from my stash.  Mixed it with some manly texture, perfect for him!

OK, now back to flowers, butterflies, and ribbon!

Cardstock: PTI Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Fine Linen
Stamps: PTI BB Woodgrain, BB Newsprint, Postmarks, Enjoy The Ride
Ink: Versamark, Memento Brown, PTI Tea Dye Duo
Other: K&Company Dimensional Sticker, PTI Buttons, PTI Twine, Mat Stack Die, Vellum Quote, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Clear Embossing Powder


  1. Oh wow, these are both awesomely suited for a guy. The varied shades of brown keep it manly but still interesting. I love that deer head. How perfect you had it in your stash!

  2. Wow. Those are great, Kara! Perfect for guys and I really like the mixed words on the first one. Very cool!

  3. Both of these are great masculine cards! I really love the deer head card, so cool how you placed the sentiment!

  4. Love both of these!
    Inspiration for how to use Postmarks...
    of which I'm still intimidated by.
    And love-of-my-life-man-that-I-married would die over the deer card!
    Both are awesome!

  5. Great men's cards. I really love how you embossed the images on the first card.

  6. Both cards turned out great. I'm trying to come up with some masculine cards too. I sure could use the sets from this months release...haha.

  7. Oh, my. These are fabulous. I especially like the first card and might have to borrow the design in the future for my brother. His name is also Tom.

  8. These are GREAT and will be stashed to CASE - but I wanna see the rejects too !! Thanks for the inspiration !

  9. Great masculine cards, Kara! I especially like how you layered the Postmarks sentiments. Very cool!!

  10. Ok, Miss Kara. These are fantastic masculine cards! I am particularly drawn to the first one. I love how you've used the postmark elements and layered them over the newsprint! Brilliant!

  11. This guy cards rock...just found your blog! Enjoyed, cherry

  12. Kara, both cards are amazing . Such perfect guy cards. The sticker is perfect and I love the embossed backround. Great ideas in the way you used the postmark stamps. Take care.
