'Crafty' Playdate Mens Cards...

I spent the evening on Weds with my friend making a number of Mens cards - all using Stampin' Up! card, stamps and accessories... and here is what we made - of course there was lots of gossiping and chocolate eating that went on as well! LOL
The first one is made using the in the stars stamp set with close to cocoa card stock and a strip of not quite navy card acrossd the middke - this had been run through the big shot to emboss a pattern on. The stars are stamped using not qite navy on whisper white and the other two stars are punched out of card stock, one brilliant blue and the other more mustard. There are four eyelets to decorate in co-ordinating colours made with the crop-o-dile.
The second card is also using in the stars set with a more mustard card blank not quite navy strip through the middle - again run through the big shot, the greeting is also stamped on more mustard and in not quite navy ink. The stars are in whisper white one stamped and one punched out, both decorated with buttons with string tied through.

The final card my favourite uses the circle of friendship stamp set on a plain white card blank, there is a panel of chocolate chip card stock with a border around each edge, with two smaller panels of bashful blue that has been run through the bigshot to decorate, this has then been edged with not quite navy card stock. Across the middle of the card are two eyelets with string tied through them to decorate. the stamp is then layered onto not quite navy, whisper white then onto bashful blue and again onto a scolloped punch.

here is a close up I think that these 'crafty' get togethers are going to be a weekly thing! I certainly need the practice and they are really enjoyable - what a better way to spend a couple of hours! I hope you like these and thanks for looking!


  1. Hi Debbi! I love these cards - I REALLY struggle with making cards for men (unless they like sparkles and stuff!) Fab colours and embellishments - I especially like the use of textured card!

  2. Great male cards Debbi - love them!! Kate x
