Earlier this year, I posted a blog all about Masculine DIY Card Ideas. Personally, I struggle with masculine cards because I always want to add sequins, pearls, ribbons, and girly colors! 🙂 But as I always say, it’s good for us to stretch ourselves outside the box sometimes to keep our artistic skills growing.
Even though I had written a blog about this very topic, I still found myself lost when it came time to actually make a masculine card! So, I reached out to my crafting friends on Facebook and they reinforced what I’d already written in my previous blog… which is to:
A.) Create a card based upon his interests/hobbies, etc.
B.) Keep it simple – not too many layers or embellishments
C.) Use “earthy” tones or colors found in nature
I guess I just needed a little reassurance that I was going in the right direction with my card. So, I sat down at my craft desk and came up with the card you see pictured below.

Notice how I still incorporated pops of color in this card?? Just because it’s a masculine card doesn’t mean that it has to be drab and boring. Have fun with them! If you want to see how I made this card, I have all of the supplies I used listed below, as well as a full tutorial video! Happy crafting!

Hello all! I hope everyone is having a happy May thus far. I was honored to be a Guest Designer at Through The Craft Room Door blog this month! I used a digital image from LC Designs for my card. I just recently began trying digital images and enjoyed this new venture. So… I thought I would post the card I made to inspire you to try something new, also!
What are digital images? Basically, they are like clip art (drawn by an artist) and either sold or given away as freebies on crafting blogs and websites. You can print them on your printer and color them in. They can be used for your cards, scrapbooks, art journals, or just about anything crafty!
Below, I have listed the supplies I used to make this owl card. Again, I would like to thank LC Designs for the digital image and Through The Craft Room Door for having me as a Guest Designer!
