This month I wanted to make a more masculine feeling card. I turned to my patterned paper pad that I have had quite a long time in my stash by Recollections. Unfortunately, the paper pad does not have a name, but it has tans and browns in its pallet. I love it. It is my go-to when creating a masculine card. To see the pad up close check out the coordinating video of my making this card here. The card was inspired by a card I pinned on Pinterest. It is not the same but close. The card is 4 ¼ x 5 ½. The background piece I cut out using a scalloped edged die, then dry embossed with an embossing folder that to me looks like the pattern you see on some metal pieces. I distressed this a bit with some black soot distress oxide. Layered on that is a piece of patterned paper and it has a double stitched edge thanks to another die in my stash. I then added on three smaller pieces from the pad. The sentiment brought it together. The strip is from a pack I got from Alli Express called Junk Journal Sentiment Stickers. The Relax and Enjoy I made on Cricut Design Space using my Cricut Explore to cut it out of white cardstock.
This was a pretty simple card. I am glad I took the time to do it as my stash of masculine themed cards was looking slim. I think I need to make a few more. Hope you were inspired!
