June 2022 Friends of Unity Blog Hop!

 Happy June, I hope your finally seeing sunny warmer days.   This month we are hopping with a .  Masculine theme.   A lot of us are challenged by masculine cards.  I hope this hop  brings you lots of inspiration

When making masculine cards, think simple.   Most men (I am a mom of three grown boys) that I know that I have sent cards to, don't really care about all the fluff, so really keep it simple.  I tend to do more vintage looking stuff for masculine cards, like cars etc.  But, using a silly image like this dad looking bear is perfect way to keep things simple.   I paired it with darker colors and used a silly little hello sentiments.  Pretty easy if you ask me!  The image is a bit older but this bear has been a fav of mine, and I think he's perfect for guy/dad cards.  It's called Patience & Hugs.  It's a great little set to have.



 


I left a lot of space to the left of the image, I really wanted some of the paper to be seen here, Using this type of paper with rulers, maps etc...can be a great way to add color but keep the image "masculine"  Keeping the sentiment and everything together pulls your eye over to the image.  
 
I hope you all enjoy the hop, and I also hope that it gets your mojo flowing so that your all set to make those cards for dads day!

Adorable and sweet card, Dawn! I think I have that cute bear... I may have to ink him up! Thanks for the cute inspiration!

This is the cutest card ever! I am glad you showed the patterned paper and I love it when images aren't always in the center. The rulers are awesome and great for so many occasions. Your coloring is awesome and the bear's tie is adorable.

Love the background paper. Cute card!

Meg Crawford said...

I like this card, Dawn. Thanks for the idea on off centering the stamped image so more of the background paper is seen. I often struggle with covering up the patterned papers I use.
