Masculine Clean and Simple Card

I don’t know about you, but I am always in need of masculine cards. I LOVE it when I come across a masculine design which is not only clean and simple, but also quick and easy. Today’s card is all that! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

This week I have the honor of hosting our Clean and Simple challenge.  I selected a masculine theme, Men in Mind. I will be showcasing some of the products from Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog, which goes live on June 3rd. I hope you enjoy!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

A great layout can make the task of designing a card a breeze.  This one is a fabulous one for showcasing a paper.  All that is needed is an appropriate sentiment.  And speaking of paper, this beauty is actually a World of Good Memories & More card trimmed down. Brass foil globes dance across a background of Misty Moonlight. Isn’t this gorgeous? This layout would be so perfect for a variety cards made with selections from this Memories & More Card Pack or from the World of Good designer series paper collection. Be sure to download the pdf tutorial so you will have all of the paper measurements you need.  You’ll be able to create a stash of masculine cards in no time!
