Today’s quick and easy handmade cards for men uses something I haven’t pulled out in awhile – embossing paste and my decorative masks. But now they’re retiring I remember what I love so much about them 😂! And I wanted to make sure you knew it too before they’re gone for good!

First let me show the items you need to make this fun background.


So…let’s see our card…

Perfect for a guy don’t you think? Neutral tones, nature theme, classic layout.

But there’s even more things I love about this card!

  • of course the textured background is the first thing that pops out at you! TIP: rather than fill the entire card with the background, I left some spots open for interest
  • then the mix of diamond and oval shapes
  • two step stamping for the image, and
  • the boldness of the black words (which incidentally are embossed!)

What you can’t see in this photo is the glitter in the background! Let’s lean in a little closer.

Now if you’ve never used embossing paste and a die before, there are a few things to keep in mind. Make sure you check them out in this video and this blog post.

Up To You Now Stamper!

Think how many different designs and backgrounds you can make with one jar of that cool embossing paste! A little really really goes a long way! But remember, it’s going to disappear soon!

What’s also going to be gone are the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the Dazzling Diamonds (eeek!) glitter! Oh no for all my bling loving crafting friends!

And even though every year I remind you to pick up your retiring supplies early, there’s always a few who are disappointed when their choices are no longer available. Don’t let that happen to you! It’s just a simple click on any image below to take you to my online Stampin’ Up! store where you can have it shipped directly to your door. Thanks for shopping with me!
