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!
