Do you struggle with cards masculine cards? I know I do. Are they too pretty, should I use ribbon or bling (my favourite embellishment) I mean what’s a card with bling right! I’m always on the lookout for stamps to add to my collection that will make those difficult cards easier.
Today’s cards features the new World of Good product suite from the 2020-21 Annual catalogue. Not only is it great for male cards it would be perfect for travel memory keeping and scrapbooking. This stamp set will definitely be a “keeper” in my collection. Did you know that you can order all the products in the suite with one easy code, how good is that!
I love fancy fold cards and I thought a Buckle card would be perfect for my male theme. They are super easy but really deliver on the WOW factor.
I made the Early Espresso version first and then decided to make another one using my favourite new 2020-22 In Color Misty Moonlight. I used the stamps and dies from the Beautiful World bundle and the new brass foil to cut my globe stand. I sponged the world stamped image to add some dimension and finished off with some male appropriate “bling” In Color enamel dots.
There is a tab that closes the card like a belt buckle into a slot hidden beneath the elements on the front of the card. You will need the Classic Label punch to make the “slot” for the buckle aspect. Here is a view of the card open. For detailed instructions you can watch my video here or at the end of this post.
