Manly Mondays

Manly Mondays

I’m bringing back Manly Mondays.  Many of us struggle to make male cards.  I hope you will get some inspiration on Mondays with this post and future ones.  I celebrated 10 years with Stampin’ Up at the beginning of August which was a month of much relaxation and time off.  I’ve been wanting to experiment with Aluminum foil for quite some time and kept putting it off.

For this card I took a piece of white card stock and glued aluminum foil to it prior to running it through the Big Shot with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder feature on page 13 in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.

The foil I used it quite thin so I had to be delicate in handling it.  Prior to adhering it to a base of Gray Granite Cardstock I wrapped Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon – so glittery – to give semblance to a gift.  Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits I did a black layer and on the Whisper White layer stamped the sentiment from Country Home in Gray Granite.

Hope this brought you some inspiration to make a card for a special male in your life.

Talk soon !
