Making cards for the men and boys in your life

I am often asked to suggest card designs for male themed cards, including youngsters, so I decided to bite the bullet and run a class which specialised in making male cards. 

Ideas behind the class 

I wanted to incorporate the following into my class:
  • Simple card designs that attendees could easily recreate at home
  • Make sure the class was suitable for both beginners and experienced crafters
  • Cards that are based on designer papers so that other papers can be substituted
  • Very little use of additional products (e.g minimal products required)
  • Share some new Stampin' Up! products as well as ones from the annual catalogue 
So I came up with the following designs, which in fact have evolved since the first class on 8th February in Milton Keynes. That is one of the nice things about running 4 classes - you get to (hopefully) improve on each one!

Card designs for the men and boys in your life. Quick and simple

The cards are all made using Designer paper - so there was plenty of choice, as I selected a range of papers including those like the dinosaurs which would be great for little boys!  The interesting shape which I used to cut out some of the sentiments are made using the Tailored Tag Punch. It's a modern style punch, easy to use and fits plenty of sentiments.

I provided full details of all of the measurements of the card designs, so it was easy for my attendees to go home and recreate similar cards, with whatever papers they have at home. Of course, you can stamp the background paper too to create your own designer paper.

Here are a few of the cards that were made last weekend:
