|Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack - Masculine Card Ideas|
Today I used it to make some masculine Valentine's Day cards. I say masculine, because they are not all frilly and white and pink, but they could be used for the ladies as well! They are striking in the black and white with a pop of red. If the layout is familiar, I cased my Masculine birthday card HERE. Once you get the measurements, and remember to cut long strips in stead of individual tags, it goes pretty quick!! Still, a little bit involved, if you're just looking for a quick card this is not it! #justsayin
|Varying the size of the pennants would work better on larger cards.|
On this A2, they were a leeeetle large.
On the first card, I forgot to check my measurements and cut the pennants, all 10, into 0.75" wide by 1"-2" length. It made for a very large accent piece over the Woodgrain embossed Basic Grey panel. I used Teeny Tiny Greetings stamp, which certainly lives up to its name on this banner. Ummmmm. Next!!
|Back to the layout this time. Measure twice, Cut once, right?|
I still had lots of paper to use from the pages from the Stacked with Love pack, so I decided to try two more cards.
|The Chevron Embossing folder kind of |
looks like that metal Diamond Plating, very manly! LoL
|Birthday Themed, the colors still work for more of a manly look.|
I still love this layout. I'll have to try it with some softer papers, and see how a more feminine take on it comes out.
Happy Monday!! I hope you'll partake in the spirit of the Martin Luther King holiday, and volunteer in your community, or at the very least, do some small acts of kindness for others today. :-) Together we can make a difference, just as working together Dr. King and his followers made a difference. We may not change the world as they did, but even small acts have ripples into eternity.
