Masculine Theme – Across the Waves Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Across the Waves Blog Hop! This month’s theme is all about Masculine projects. Thanks so much for joining us, I hope you enjoy all our Masculine Blog Hop Projects!

I have been crafting with pre-order products and this months Masculine theme was the perfect opportunity to use more of the new products coming on May 3 that I hadn’t used yet. My card features the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper, and Stylish Shapes Dies.

This card was super quick to make and required no stamping! Crazy right?! So, let me show you how I put this together.

The card base is 2 layers. The first layer is Sahara Sand cardstock, cut to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and a piece of the He’s The Man DSP cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″. The second cardbase layer is another piece of Sahara Sand cardstock cut to 3-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, and scored at 4-1/4″ and a piece of He’s The Man DSP cut to 3-1/4″ x 4″. I adhered the second layer of the card base to the first layer.

To Decorate the front of my card, using the Die Cut Sheets from the He’s The Man DSP Paper, I punched out the Scalloped Circle and the Crushed Curry Stars. Then using the Stylish Shapes Dies, I die cut a Circle from the He’s The Man DSP, and two of the flagged labels one in Crushed Curry cardstock and and one in Vellum.

I layered the smaller Crushed Curry Label on the Vellum Label with Mini Glue Dots, making sure that the adhesive wouldn’t be visible. Attached them to the card with Mini Glue Dots, again making sure the adhesive wouldn’t be visible through the Vellum.

I layered the Die Cut Circles together with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then added them to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals overlapping the very top of the labels just a bit. The finishing touch on the card front was to add the Crushed Curry Stars on either side of the card and a few Matte Round Dots to the label.

To complete the card, I added a layer of Basic White cardstock and a strip of the He’s All That DSP to the inside. That’s it, quick and easy to put together and it looks fabulous!
