Masculine Cards

I don’t know about you, but I’m always at a loss for masculine-style cards. I think I still probably am, at least for younger guys, but I was inspired to make the card below with older gentlemen in mind. I mean, who doesn’t love a good bow tie? And as I stated in my previous post, I just love the Bow Builder punch that was just released. So I perused my Pinterest boards and saw some cards using the Bigz Bow Builder and thought maybe I would try my hand at one with the new punch. It was actually easier to make than I thought, and very simple in its design.

I love the Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper Pack mostly because I love the accents of Bermuda Bay that run through it. And the flip side of the paper made a cool collar! I grabbed another sheet from the pack to make the bow.

The shirt is simply a piece of card stock cut 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored at 2 1/8″ on both sides of the long sides of the paper. The edges will meet at the front and simply fold the inner corners to the outside to make the collar. I used adhesive on the bottom inside of the card only, so I could put in an insert. Adding the bow tie further secures the shirt closed.

I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay at 4″x5″ and a piece of Whisper White at 3¾”x 4¾” to mount on top of the insert. And I love this new stamp set – Simply Wonderful – it’s very versatile and has some fun phrases!

So what are you waiting for? Let’s see what you can create!
