What makes it masculine?

To me its color ... darker colors, blues and green s and browns.  Here is a masculine card I made:

To make the 3D stars, I punched out stars using my large and small star punches.  Then I scored from each point down.  Once all 5 scores were made I crimped the star up along the scor marks into the center (this is from a tutorial that I saw on line ... I'm sorry I did not write down who did it).  I mounted all the stars on foam tape.

For the sail boat I stamped the outline sails on the white focal layer then again on striped paper from Cosmo Cricket's The Boyfriend minideck.  I cut and mounted the sails using foam tape as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love what you did with those stars! How creative that was and looks very realistic. You did a great job with the sailboat too. Very nice card!
