Card A Day Blog Post: Just For Men

Hi everyone, it's time for another entry from me for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, Just For Men. Here is the card that I made.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. For my background paper, I cut a piece of silver metallic paper from Colorbok at 5.25" x 4", then embossed it with the gears Cuttlebug embossing folder. I then cut a piece of black netting trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon, a little longer than the width of the background paper, adhered it across the middle of it, then adhered the background piece to the card base.

For the panel on the left side of the card, I cut a piece of black cardstock, cut to 2.25" x 5", then cut a piece of  patterned paper from the Die Cut With A View, Rockstar Stack,at 2" x 4.75", and adhered that piece to the solid black piece, then added it to the left side of my card. For the guitar, I cut out one of the guitars in a scrap piece that I had from the same paper stack, and added it to the top of the panel with dimensional tape.

For the star accent on the right side, I cut out a star with black cardstock using the next to the smallest die in the Stars Five Spellbinders die set, then I punched out a star from the metallic paper using the McGill Star Silhouette Punch, and glued that on top of the black star piece. I then attached the star to my card using dimensional tape.

Awesome card Jill. I have the Rockstar paper pad too that one that you used is my favorite of the pack. I love what you did with the background perfect for a Male card. Thanks for sharing

Hi Jill, I love your design! I'm a newbie so I do not have any fancy contraptions to use, but I would like to use your idea and see what I can do with scrap paper and embellishments. I'm planning on making this for a friend and player, so i may try to size it for a frame. Be blessed. ALHS
