Masculine Cards

I have a good supply of cards made but noticed that I'm a bit short on ones suitable to send to men so I'm on a mission to redress the balance.  For this card I've used lots of items which I've had for some years apart from the wood grain background paper which is a recent acquisition.  A scrap of card was embossed with a clock embossing folder and highlighted with copper gilding wax. A clock face has been stamped on another piece and backed with a circle in a colour to match the embossed panel.  The cogs were cut from a scrap of card which had been coloured with spritzes of copper  spray.  Finally a sentiment was stamped on yet another scrap.

Clock Face - stamp from Stampin' Up Sense of Time
Embossing Folder and sentiment stamp - both by Tm Holtz
Cogs - dies from Papermania (Docraft)
Background - pad of paper from The Works


  1. You must have read my mind Val as I was only thinking today I haven't got an 'men' in my stash (Cards I mean!)
    A great card here - and the clocks embossing folder is one of my favourites.

  2. Very manly and using ready items that we probably all have in our stash too. I'm sure I have but just needed the inspiration to put them all together. Just seen your post below so off to investigate further. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. A fantastic card Val, I'm always short of male themed cards.
