FCCB #303 - Masculine Cards!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #303-Masculine Cards
Create a project that features cards suitable for boys or men

This Weeks Sponsor

The prize is 4 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project for this challenge I'm using the digital stamp Make It Snappy- You Light Up My Life from our awesome sponsor Bugaboo Stamps, which I coloured with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers - both alcohol based. I wanted to make a card that I could give to my hubby - just for being so awesome! Even though the patterned paper has pink in it, I focused on the yellows and reds by using those colours in my colouring and diecuts - giving it a more masculine feel.

I diecut the lightbulb from the CTMH Artistry cartridge and cut a lightbulb border from the Wall Decor and More cartridge. The fun background paper is from a Retro paper pad I got from Michaels, and I was excited to discover it would go so well with my theme!

I added some Stickles glitter to the diecuts and a clear Glimmer pen to the stamp to add a bit of bling. Just because this card is for a guy doesn't mean it shouldn't have a little sparkle 😉

A little Distress Ink around the edges of my diecuts gave it some shading and I layered the digi stamp on red cardstock and popped it up with foam dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you haven't stopped by over the weekend, you may want to also check out the fun blog hop that's still going on HERE!
