I Say Hello Stamp Set - Masculine Card

Bruno and I have had a very busy week with family visiting and my Grandfathers funeral - and Bruno has been creating some cards for when we go away and return so we can get ahead and inspire you all. One thing that he mentioned which was so interesting for me to hear, was how calming he found the card making. That it helped him to be less stressed.

He turned off all electronic devices and just made cards... no distractions, no notifications, no pings of the phone.... and he said it was just so enjoyable. In fact he made over ten cards in one day! Woo Hoo!! So we have lots in store for you over the next few months.

Here is a totally Bruno card that I wanted to share with you today. I know many of us struggle to make masculine cards and I thought Bruno's would be a perfect guide for you to know what a masculine card looks like.

I want to point out some ideas that you may not have thought of. 

Firstly I love the geometric lines, there is no fluff to this card, straight, layered and bold. You can totally use colour mixed with some neutrals it is perfect for a masculine card.
I love that he has been able to use ribbon - who would think masculine and ribbon could go together? It totally can! The way Bruno has doubled the ribbon gives it the look of something strong - like rope, which is masculine.

So that may help you undo some theories you might of had about masculine cards.

Are you wondering what the Designer Series Paper is?? Bruno totally got into #loveitchopit and used the new 6" x 6" In colour Designer Series Paper. This colour is the NEW Pretty Peacock and it is a gorgeous colour. Paired with the Crumb Cake - it is a winner!

Thank you so much for coming by today. We love hearing from you. I really hope that you feel the same way about your crafting as Bruno does. That it can take you into a world of no stress - where you can just float away in your own little bubble of creativity.  Make sure you take some time out for you and do this often. It is much better than getting sick or having to pay for medicine!
