Sue here today with a masculine card. I don't know about you but I have a hard time making cards for the guys, especially when the guy in question is a teenager having a birthday.
I tend to go for darker colours and minimal embellishments for a masculine card and definitely no florals! So I played it safe and went with dies that I consider to be a birthday card staple: balloons, stars and a banner.
I decided to grab a bunch Alcohol Inks and colour glossy card stock to use for all my die cutting. It's a subtle way to add texture and visual interest to die cuts.
Since all the die cuts were so colourful I used gray card stock for my background and added that to a black card base and I finished off with silver thread for the balloon strings.
Thank you so much for dropping by today!
