Hi Roadies! Do you ever struggle to make masculine cards? I know I do! I often get carried away with the pinks, purples, and pastels, and when I need a masculine card I don’t have any! So I decided to focus on that for today’s blog post.I made two masculine cards using the Mug Life stamp set. The card design is the same on both cards, only using different color schemes. Let me know which one is your favorite.I started with white card stock cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I started by stamping “death before decaf” all over using a light cream colored ink.Next I stamped the coffee mug using the same ink color.I added a pop of color by stamping “mug life” using blue ink in the center of the coffee mugs.I used the dots from Bun Intended to fill in more of the white space. I stamped them using black ink.
I stamped and colored the coffee cups using alcohol markers. I also stamped one of the sentiments in the center of the cup holder in black ink. I heat embossed one of the bigger sentiments from Mug Life onto blue cardstock. I prepped my cardstock before embossing then stamped using a clear ink. I used white embossing powder and then heat set. I used foam tape to adhere the heat embossed sentiment and coffee cup onto a small vellum rectangle.
A card is not complete without some IR gems! I added the gorgeous flat back gems in Tyler Blue to both cards.
I hope you like these cards and hopefully I’ve given y’all some inspiration for masculine card ideas. Have an amazing day, Roadies! -Lorena
