How to make Quick and Easy Male Cards

Your brother/husband/son/male cousin/ male friend is having a birthday and you need a card in a hurry.  You look through your card box and find plenty of girly cards, some baby cards, maybe a sympathy card or a wedding card...but there are no male birthday cards.  Why do you have such a shortage on male cards?  Does this happen to you?  This is often me.  I look at my birthdays for the month and rustle through my card box pulling out cards that might match the recipients on my list.  I usually conclude I need more male cards for my stash!

Sometimes it is hard to get inspired to make male cards... you might prefer to use pretty papers, lace, ribbons, flowers etc etc.  Well in this post I share four quick and easy designs you can make.  These cards will build up your male card stash in no time at all and you might even fall in love with the bright bold colours and graphics.  I have!

The good news is that Picture My Life Cards don't just have to be used for Pocket Scrapbooking.
They are also perfect for making quick and easy cards.  For the next few weeks I will be making male cards using the Later Sk8r Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program.

Watch the video below to see the product:




In this first card "Never Give Up on your Dreams" I followed these simple steps:
  1. Attach one of the "Never Give Up on your Dreams" 4x6 cards to a folded white base card.  
  2. Cut out the "on your Dreams" banner from the identical 4x6 card (there is two of each design in the pack) and adhere it over the top of the first card with mounting tape.
  3. Add some little white stars randomly over the card.
Super quick and easy!

Card #1 - Never Give Up on your Dreams
In this second card "Football Boots" I followed these simple steps:
  1. Attach one of the "Football Boots" cards to a folded white base card.  
  2. Cut out each boot from the identical 4x6 card (there is two of each design in the pack) and adhere it over the top of the first card with mounting tape.  Add a star to the star on the boot.
  3. Stamp a sentiment I chose "Have a Happy Day" onto card and staple on.  Stamp arrows in the bottom corner.

Card #2 - Football Boots





In this third card "Play Ball" I followed these simple steps:
  1. Attach one of the "Baseball" cards to a folded white base card.  
  2. Cut out the bat, ball and red tag from the identical 4x6 card (there is two of each design in the pack) and adhere it over the top of the first card with mounting tape.  
  3. Stamp a sentiment I chose "Have a Happy Day" onto card and attach.  Stamp arrows in two corners.

Card #3 - Play Ball

In this fourth card "You are my Fave" I followed these simple steps:
  1. Attach one of the "You are my Fave" cards to a folded white base card.  
  2. Cut out a star and bunting flag from another card and adhere it over the top of the first card with mounting tape.  
  3. Stamp some arrows and a circle.  Stamp Thank You sentiment. Outline star, bunting and some letters in black pen.  Add the triangle studs.

Card #4 - You Are My Fave

The result = Four super quick and easy male cards for your stash.

Hey All!

Amy here from Paisley's Playhouse!!

"Who's the boss?" Not me...that is why I made a card for my for my super awesome boss. I definitely hit the jackpot there. I have had a few not so great ones but most of the time I have been lucky and have had good ones. I am going to go out on a limb and say it is because I am a super duper employee.



Anyway I am the boss of my craft which means I do what I want when I am paper crafting. I can color outside the line and break the "rules" if I want to.

Can you spot what I did on this card?


If you noticed that my boarder stamp is the same wreath I have been using then yes you guess it! I cut my stamp up. Say what?



I was very careful and trimmed between the image and then I made it a boarder.


I will admit I was a little nervous in all my many stamping years I have never cut a stamp before but I really wanted to use this as a boarder so I just did it.

Love it.

I also did something else a little different on this card. I had an emergency with my olive cardstock as in I ran out! Wha wha what? How could this be it is one of my favorite colors anyway and what with it being fall and all...what is a girl to do?

Make my own





I think it turned out pretty good. I also like to do this if I just need a little big of color or a brushed look.




Supplies*:
Cardstock - Champaign (x5931), Barn Red (X56372), Colonial White (1388)
Ink - Black (Z2105) Olive (Z2137)
Stamp Sets - Thanksgiving Wreath (B1454), Pennant Alphabet (E1018) retired
Pattern Paper - Pathfinding (X7186B)
Embellishments - Opaques Mocha (Z1333)
*All supplies are from Close to my Heart unless otherwise noted.

You can find these Close to my Heart products at Jessica's CTMH store. Don't forget to check out the rest of the design teams blogs throughout the week. You can find a link in the sidebar.

Hey All!!

Corene here from Corene's Creations! 


This week DT smash book page for Craftinandstampin' is a soft and sweet one! 

I'm using the Wildwood My Crush book from CTMH. 

I printed a 4x6 photo of my two nieces in black and white, which is my favorite type to use.
I printed papers from my computer.
I used Crate paper (party streamer) and my double sided tape & pleated it going across my page. I did four rows of it...love how it turned out!

I used a bow that I cut from the Silhouette design #25162.

I also cut the Damask, and the word love from the Silhouette. Design #'s 66681 and 67977.


Added a couple handmade enamel dots, along with American Crafts glitter tape.

Simple but cute! 

I hope you enjoyed!
