I have a whole collection of masculine cards to share with you today, great for Father’s Day, masculine birthdays, or other occasions for the dudes in your life. Bonus tutorial included for the diagonal easel card I posted recently!
The first card uses the Tailored Tag punch, as well as the True Gentleman DSP and Truly Tailored stamp set. The punch is still current, though the paper and stamp set have retired. You can see how easy it is to make a great card with this fun punch design! I will definitely have more uses for this punch in my craft studio.
I used the same stamp set and paper to create this dapper double-z fold card! I just never get sick of this fold and the awesome variations it offers.
The Dad Jokes stamp set is one I just had to buy, as my husband can’t resist making jokes like this …. the bigger the groan, the better! Though the stamp set is now retired, I think I’ll be hanging on to the stamps and continuing to create with them! It also uses the Simple Stripes embossing folder, which is one of my new favourites!
Here’s a fantastic masculine card that works for a variety of occasions, using the stunning Waterfront stamp set. I used the chair die cut from the Seasonal Layers set, and one of my layering squares to cut out the window frame. “Celebrate” is from the terrific new Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, which has already gotten a lot of use in my studio! With so much variety and versatility, it’s a terrific set to have on hand.
And now, as promised, a tutorial! You might remember I posted a photo of this card when I used it as a swap card for my May team meeting. Here’s how you can make your own.
The base for this card is 4 x 8″, scored at 4″ and scored diagonally on the front flap from centre bottom to top left.
Depending on what colour card base you use, you may also need a white or vanilla insert of 4 x 4″ to write your sentiment.
For the front of the card, start with a 4 x 5.25″ piece of cardstock and decorate as desired.
Your final touch will be a stamped and punched piece that is attached to the base with dimensionals, to hold your easel open.
I hope you like the tutorial! Leave me a comment with your recent creations!
Happy Stampin’, and Happy Father’s Day to the dads in your life!
