I was asked to make a few sympathy cards for a local business. They wanted a mix of masculine and feminine cards. Feminine cards are no problem but masculine cards are TOUGH. The ribbons and sparkles are what make the cards spacial but I just don't feel like you can do that and still have a masculine feeling card. The good thing is I just bought a few sets the other week so that I would have a few more options when it came to masculine cards. All the stamps used on these cards are from Stampin Up.
This card has an embossed background and I used Lovely As A Tree and Close As A Memory.
This card also uses Lovely As A Tree and Close As A Memory.
I got to use one of my new sets on this card...Nature's Silhouettes...and also Close As A Memory for the sentiment.
Another new set on this one...Pocket Silhouettes...and Close As A Memory for the sentiment.
I think I achieved several good looking masculine cards using these sets.
