Happy Purrthday (Masculine Card)

Hey friends, it's Christy here! Today I have a cute masculine card for my little guy's birthday. He absolutely loves cats, so I just had to make him a card with Lawn Fawn's Meow You Doin'?

So I have a couple of tips that I always adhere to when making boy cards: use bright, primary colors, simple shapes (in this case I used circles and stripes), and little to no embellishments. For some reason boys just typically don't go for the froo from stuff! ;)

Bearing that in mind, I colored my images with Copic markers and cut them out with the matching dies. I layered them on top of my focal panel, from the Shimelle Little By Little 6x6 pad die cut with one of the  MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle die-namics

I used a blue card base (his favorite color) accented with strips of red cardstock. I added just the teensiest bit of embellishment by die cutting the cross-stitched pattern into the bottom strip with one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders. And finished the outside by stamping my sentiment in Lawn Fawn Blue Jay ink

I also did some fun stamping on the inside, but I'll save that for the video. :) Don't forget you can click on the YouTube icon at the bottom right corner to watch it there in HD. I hope you enjoyed my card today, and feel a little more confident about making masculine cards yourself.  Have a great day!
