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!
- I will pick out and stamp a focal image first.
- I’ll pick out some patterned papers(s) that I want to use.
- Up next, I’ll reach for my cardstock and then start colouring in my image.
- 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.
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
