Three Cards for Men

Hello dear Blogger Friends:

I have today three sample cards  for three different occasions to give to those men in our lives...
For some reason I hear constantly around card makers and students that cards for men are difficult to design...
So here there are 3 samples for you to get inspired and choose from...
I hope you like them!

1- First...we start with a Happy Birthday card...
The background was made using the re-inkers from archival inks from Wendy Vecchi and alcohol...on "specialty stamping paper" which is crucial to achieve the technique!

The technique TUTORIAL;
on how to make this background can be found:  HERE

and the die for the "Happy Birthday" script die from Memory Box also...

2- This Second card can be use for any occasion
or for some men in your life that play music or just like music ... Who doesn't?

The background was made using 2 unique and different dies meant to be used as edges (the "sheer circles" and the "cubic"  edges dies) but here I decided to create a background with them...and place behind papers of different colors...

for the Corner I placed the "Tall Fern Corner" die from Memory Box

3- And lastly but not least...one of my favorites...
A card made using "Silks Acrylic paints", which I love using them...on watercolor paper

More SAMPLES
