If you’ve ever wondered how to make cool cards men will keep on the mantle, make sure you stay put! I’ve got an easy solution for you.
Making cards for guys can be tough.
There’s no two ways about it. How do you find the right stamps when there are so many flowers?
How do you pick the right colours when all the Stampin’ Up! DSP is pinks and purples?
You want a card that he looks at every time he passes by it, right? None of those powder pinks and bows and glitz! Please Stampin’ Up! Give us some rough and ready GUY colours!
You’ll be happy to know Stampin’ Up! heard our pleas. Their answer? The He’s All That suite. With some gosh-darn down right spectacular paper…perfect for guys!
But I couldn’t resist this one today…considering it is National Beer Day! Take a peek!
Isn’t it perfect? Even if your fella isn’t a lager guy, there’s no better way to wish him a happy birthday than with this super fast fun fold.
Almost all the elements come directly from the He’s the Man Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. 10 sheets of patterns in manly colours. Plus two sheets of punch-out pre-coloured die shapes so your card making takes practically no time at all!
Take a closer look at all of the choices you get in the package, all perfectly colour coordinated!
I’ve played lots with this paper, and the bundle it’s paired with, He’s All That. And I just know you’ll make loads of cards with those sheets of cool die cuts.
How to Make Cool Cards Men Will Keep on the Mantle
I love how this shot turned out!
It’s my favourite fun fold, a gatefold card but changed up a bit with two different patterned papers on the front. A simple Cajun Craze square cut with my Paper Trimmer gets some added dash with the picture mount stamp.
Add just one of the “ready to go” die cuts and pop it in the mail! Here’s how!
Now It’s Your Turn!
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Sahara Sand – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″
- Cajun Craze – 2 3/8″ x 2 3/8″
- DSP – two different pieces 2″ x 5 3/8″, one round die cut
Let’s Make It
- Fold card and glue one piece of DSP on each front panel.
- Stamp the picture mount in each of the 4 corners of the Cajun Craze square with Early Espresso ink and glue to the left side only of the card front.
- Add dimensionals to die cut and adhere in middle of Cajun Craze square. Add 4 Rustic Dots on picture mounts.
And how about if you wanted to fancy up the inside? Stamp those 4 corners again and the No. 1 circle and paste in some stars. All done!
I can guarantee you will love how easy this paper is to make quick cards. There are almost UNlimited numbers you can craft up in no time! Tons of ideas to keep him wandering past the mantle…just because!
