It's not easy to create a masculine card - no butterflies, flowers, lace and other pretty little trims that are the essence of our creations. So this post is all about making a manly card and I've used the ItsyBitsy Music Embossing folder for the project.
First of all the color scheme is black and white - no pretty pinks and lavenders. Then the embossed design is music bars and signs. That's neutral and not particularly feminine. Finally, get a load of that bow. Those who are familiar with my work know that I just have to add a bow to most of my projects so this time I made it a 'manly' bow. Watch my video tutorial to see how I created it.
This is the inside of the card. I embossed the music bar design on the top and bottom and added this beautiful sentiment. It's from one of my favorite Neil Diamond songs and reads:
You are the sun,
I am the moon,
You are the words,
I am the tune,
Isn't it just beautiful... LOVE IT! Here's the video tutorial of how I made this card. You can use the same technique of using sketch pens on embossed designs with any embossing folder. It's a great way to add your personal touch to a card project.
Thanks for watching and would love to hear your comments and views on this card.
