Karen Lockhart has a nice line of get well stamps that I like to pull out of my stash when making masculine cards. The slippers and the get comfy sentiment are some of my favorites. And the slippers are very versatile, they can be used for male or female cards. Below you can see my finished focal image pieces that will be attached to card fronts. I stamped the slippers onto Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper and then paper pieced them, using fine tip scissors. I shaded the slippers using a Copic E43 marker and a colorless blender. I stamped my sentiment in black and stamped some leaf images from Papertrey's Turning A New Leaf set using Versamark ink. I added two snippets of Ripe Avocado and Terracotta Tile ribbon to the main image pieces using my messy stitches.....3 lines of back and forth stitching using my sewing machine.
For the card fronts, I used a leafy patterned paper from Little Yellow Bicycle(from a local scrapbook store). And here's a tip for you: If the paper is double sided, cut the paper to fit the card front and then trim 1" of the paper off. Turn it over and use that paper as a coordinating pattern. I like to use tiny strips of patterned paper to seal the two edges.
A nice little pile of cards....makes me a happy camper. :)
And don't forget.....you can use ribbon on manly cards. I usually don't tie a bow but if you use the ribbon flat or sewn on like I did, it's totally man worthy!
