Do you have moments where you have no clue what to create with the goodies in your crafting area? I have few of those moments myself time to time. I hope by sharing two different cards you feel a bit more inspired and get ideas for your next projects. Remember, you don’t have to make it super fancy or layer upon layer. To me, it is more important that you are taking some time to create and gifting them to the ones you care about. I created a masculine Valentin’s Day card and a feminine birthday card out of our cute February Ribbon Assortments from RRR.
Creating a card for a guy doesn’t need to be a headache. I know when we think of masculine card we only think about few colors like blue, black, white, brown, dark green etc. But you can create a card using simple ingredients like I did above. Take a stamp set, take few tones of a color and create some interests. Guys like bright colors too – thus I used some bright blue colors to match the Diamond Satin Capri Blue ribbon. Yes, you noticed that I use lots of hearts, but guys deserve some hearts, right?
If you want to highlight your ribbon because its got cute elements and patterns, leave the rest of your card simple and clean. I wanted to highlight the cute flowers on the Delicate Rose Grosgrain Blue Ribbon so I simply stamped a heart balloon and a sentiment on the main layer. Didn’t add any background paper or shiny blings because I didn’t want to take way the focus too much. Instead, I added a small drops with the colors to compliment the rest of the card, and to highlight some colors of the ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the projects I shared here. Don’t stress out before you create! Just have fun and the creativity will flow naturally.
