Yumi and Fumi Guest: Stylish and Hip Chase. Masculine Cards Part 2 of 3


Welcome to Part 2 of 3 of my masculine cards series.
Here’s Part 1 and Part 3 will be coming on Friday. 

I’m going to quickly walk you through the process of how I make masculine cards using a Yumi and Fumi image. I have always loved this image of Chase as he reminds me a little of Chuck from Gossip Girl. Excuse my guilty pleasure-teeny bopper indulgence, but his hair and the smile are perfect!

  1. I will pick out and stamp a focal image first.
  2. I’ll pick out some patterned papers(s) that I want to use. 
  3. Up next, I’ll reach for my cardstock and then start colouring in my image.
  4. I often search out a current sketch, but sometimes use the sketch loosely. It  becomes an inspiration or starting point of where I want my card to go.

The sketch I used for inspiration (seen on my iPhone) is this week’s Mojo Monday sketch

I wanted to keep my card simple and still mailable, so I kept the embellishments down to a minimum and let the patterned paper and the image speak for themselves.


Here are the Copics I used for his hair, skin and eyes:


The colours I used on his blazer, tie, pants and shoes:

Time for a question, how do you make your masculine cards? I’d love to hear how you make it work for you!

Thanks for droppin’ by today and checking out my Yumi and Fumi Guest post.  xo

  1. Ooo, a mini-series! You are taking blogging to the next level!! lol! He is such a cool guy! Love the colors you used on here, can’t wait to see the rest!

  2. What a great card, I LOVE the pad of papers…can I ask who it’s by?!

    Guy cards? I seldom use bright colors, and I alwys try to use metal embellishments…to “guy” it up!
    :Dxx

    • Denice, the pack is from Basic Grey a couple years ago! I know what you mean about metal embellishments, I have a bunch that I need to use! Thanks for the reminder.

  3. I agree, this is fantastic Thanh!! I love your process. Mine is not that detailed, but it’s pretty similar. Although sometimes I tend to color my image first and then grab papers, embellishments, etc. I try to keep it minimal as well, twine, buttons or like Denice, something metallic. 🙂
    Great card, he’s super hunky. 🙂
