More Masculine Cards

In some of my previous posts, here and here, I started giving you some tips on making masculine cards, and I wanted to keep going with those and show you a few more that I have made recently.
In my previous posts I spoke about using Textured Embossing Folders, and also patterned papers on your masculine cards, and today I am going to look at torn paper or cardstock.

I have two cards to share with you today.

With this first one, I have stamped the image first and then torn around both the stamped piece of cardstock and then separately torn the Early Espresso layer.  I have made the two layers about half a centimeter different in size  so that the bottom layer does show underneath.  This card also uses some patterned papers from the Comfort Cafe DSP and a button from the Artisan Embellishment Kit.

The second card has a torn edge at the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler layer.  Both times, the torn edges give the cards a nice vintage feel to them, and adds some texture and interest to the card.

Both cards make use of the fantastic Feeling Sentimental stamp set, which is an exclusive Sale-a-Bration set, so make sure you order it while you can! It’s a great set for masculine cards, but I have seen some really nice feminine cards made with it too.

I have heaps more to share with you, there has been lots of crafting in our house recently, so stay tuned!
Happy stamping!
Chris
