Masculine Make Monday: Foil Stripes

Hi crafty folks,

I hope that you are all well and are fitting in some lovely crafting time.

For todays post I will be sharing another card designed for men. Although this series of shares is called Masculine Make Mondays, these cards can of course be used for anyone.

The card was designed around the Main panel of card – the kraft card with aqua foiled stripes. This is one sheet from a We Are Memory Keepers mini card-stack.

I wanted the card to have layers but not bulk. Here is what I came up with:

I started with a smooth, shiny grey card for the base and I chose A6 for the card size.

I layered a bright yellow onto the card base and then added the foiled panel. I layered a black die cut ‘hello’ onto three pennant/flagged patterned paper strips. These were then layered onto a die cut circle in the same yellow as used  before:

The die cut word and circle were both coloured with the clear, Spectrum Noir glitter pen for some subtle shimmer and dimension.

The overall effect is colourful and striking without being too busy or over the top.

For the cards interior I added a smooth, white card panel with a simple yellow card strip along the bottom, to co-ordinate inside with out.

I hope that you have enjoyed todays post, any questions please ask in the comments below 🙂

Take care folks and Happy Crafting!!

  1. Aw, now that’s lovely Jenni!!
    I’m normally not a great lover of shiny card stock (hence the reason you rarely see me use mirri card, even though I have a drawerfull of the stuff!).

    But this diagonal striped card is the bees knees. It’s the perfect colour combination and the stripes being on the diagonal make it more masculine in feel.

    A GREAT make. Well done you clever thing.
