Beautiful Life Masculine Card

Hello and welcome to my blog.

What is this?....I hear you say! I know, it's not a girly project. LOL I really find it hard to do masculine cards - do you? I hope my card today gives you some inspiration.

When I first saw this particular sheet of pattern paper from playing with pattern, I instantly went to a masculine theme. Now, most of my stamps are more girly but thought this world map would be great as it isn't girly but can be used for both male and female who love to travel.

I originally cut out a piece of crushed curry cardstock to go behind the globe but it just didn't look right, so I went with whisper white instead. The globe is raised using dimensionals. The dsp is cut to 2" wide with the white layer behind, 1/8" wider.

As you can see, the dsp is adhered to the card base while the globe and the sentiment are raised.

I grabbed my night of navy cardstock and scored it at 14.5cm, not realising that I must have used this piece at some point as it wasn't long enough. Hmmmm. I had an off cut piece of crushed curry and thought I could attach it to the bottom so it would measure 14.5cm too. Then this stripey die came out this is how it ended up.

Card Measurements: Imperial
Base card - Night of Navy = 4" x 10.5" (score @ 5 1/2")
Layer 1 - Whisper White = 2 1/8" x 4 7/8""
Layer 2 - DSP = 2" x 4 6/8"
Layer 3 - Crushed Curry = 4" x 1"

Card Measurements: Metric
Base card - Night of Navy = 10.5cm x 29cm (score @ 14.5cm)
Layer 1 - Whisper White = 10cm x 13.5cm
Layer 2 - DSP = 9.7cm x 13.2cm
Layer 3 - Crushed Curry = 2cm x 14.5cm

I hope you like today's card. If you have any questions, let me know.

Thanks for visiting, stay safe and have a great day.

Happy Crafting,
