MFT January Creative Challenge

"Hi everyone, and welcome to this month's My Favorite Thing's Creative Challenge! Our Design Team Creative Challenge  is a monthly feature where we challenge our Design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month it's "Masculine Cards" Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have creative solutions for you today!"
I know most of us cardmakers are a bit afraid to make masculine cards, or cards for men, boys. Well I am no exception lol.  I am always struggling a bit about the does and dont's. Personally I would never use paperflowers on a boys card anymore but I've seen some pretty awesome cards from cardmakers out there who did a great job with them. But like I said it's a personal thing;-) I love to use rough materials, stars, buttons, twine, cardboard, stapled and colors like blue, brown, red for a masculine card. For this card I've used designpaper from October Afternoon, you see a little bit of a "map" on the background. The card is for my dad who travels a lot with my mum back and forward to Sweden, where they live for a couple of months each year:-) The sentiment is stamped on the Tag You're It and the Dad letters are from the By The Letters Die-namics.
For the inside the sentiment is stamped on the Just The Ticket Die-namics with Brown Archival Ink.
And for the back I've used my personal stamp together with scraps and staples. Hope my Dad love my card when he find this in his mailbox in Sweden:)

Well that's it for me now, please be sure to check out the MFT blog and hop along all of the fantastic ideas to make your own Masculine card, Enjoy!

Stamps: First Class Friend | Die-namics: Stacking Stars, Just The Ticket, By The Letters, Tag, You're It, Open ZigZagBorder | Paper: Ocotber Afternoon, White Bazzill Cardstock, Kraft | Other: brads, twine, staples
