It's Wednesday and that means a new challenge at Stampin' Royalty! This week is a theme challenge and it is all about the guys in your life. Our challenge to you is to create a MASCULINE card for any occasion. We all know how hard it can sometimes be to make those manly cards but I am sure we all have a special man in our life that would enjoy receiving a card too!
I decided to create a card for the kids to give to their dad on Father's Day.
When I made the card I designed it with the same colour scheme as the gift that we had made for him in mind. The base of the card is Basic Gray card stock. I layered on a piece of Basic Black card stock then a piece of Well Worn Designer Series Paper and destressed the edeges of both. To create the medallion I took a 1 1/4" x 12" strip of Basic Gray DSP (from the Neutrals Designer Paper Stack) and scored it every 1/4" using the Simply Scored Tool. Next I layered on a piece of Bashful Blue card stock that had been die cut using one of the dies from the new Apothacary Framelits and embossed with the Lattice Textured Impressions Folder I then added to Mini Silver Brads to either end.
The #1 was die cut from card stock using the Timeless Type Junior Sizzlets and also embossed. To give a real "manly" feel to the card I die cut the word "DAD" using the same sizzlets but this time from a piece of Wood Sheets, then sponged the letters with Basic Gray Ink.
So are you wondering what the gift looks like that this card goes a long with? :) Stampin' Up! had asked this year's Artisan Award Winner's to create one last project for their Facebook Page and we were told to create a Father's Day themed project or anything that we wanted. (you can see what everyone else came up with HERE) I am sure you guessed what I chose. For once I have something done ahead of time,lol!
“I wanted to create something really special for my husband for Father’s Day and what could be more perfect then a personalized gift created in My Digital Studio. The kids are so excited that he can now proudly display how much he means to them. I cannot stress enough how My Digital Studio makes it easy to create special and unique gifts. I just created a page, exported it to a jpeg and printed it the size that I wanted. Then by adding some traditional elements like ribbon and paper I helped the project come to life. I cannot wait to see the look on his face when he opens it!”
