Masculine = Strong. Powerful. Bold.
Masculine =Clean. Simple. Striking.
Masculine = Monochromatic. To the point.
Slightly treasured by husbands.
That's my opinion anyway.
I'm happy to add to my masculine card stash with this card for the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Melissa Shea's blog. There are some fabulous sponsors for the hop: Simon Says Stamp and Paper Smooches !
I kept my card clean, simple and graphic. I started with some fabulous patterned paper as my base, scored the lines where the two patterns met and highlighted them with a black pen. I then added the sentiment, some simple stamped swirls and topped it off with a dimensional pointing hand that is so common in old style advertising.
I'm also entering this card in the Young Crafters Unite monthly challenge, to create a masculine card!
Your next stop on the hop is Kristy Smith!
