Petite Pairs Embossed Metal Masculine Card

Petite Pairs Embossed Metal Masculine Card is our featured card today. As a crafter, I have discovered that the most difficult cards to create is a masculine card.  No matter what level of crafter you are this is ALWAYS where we all get stumped. How do you create a masculine card using the products you have without giving it a feminine look?  Today at Add a Little Dazzle we are going to share another masculine card we created. This masculine card is quite easy to create and has a beautiful adult masculine feel to it. 

Petite Pairs Embossed Metal Masculine CardAs I was creating masculine cards to share with you this week, I was trying to figure out how to create a masculine card with a heart but without it looking feminine. I didn’t want frilly but I knew I wanted a heart. I went back and forth for a while and came up with this design using the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.

I really like this design because it has a masculine adult like feel with the heart, yet it isn’t overpowering. I added the new Basic Silver Buttons for a touch of classy masculine and then I wanted to add some ribbon, BUT no bows.  After much thought, I decided to add the small piece of Basic Grey Ribbon found in the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog.  If you want to make it a feminine card, switch out the Basic Gray Duo Tone Ribbon for lace and you have the perfect feminine card.  I guess you can say this masculine card is actually UNISEX.  Just change the ribbon and you have a feminine card.  It is simple but very elegant and with the Petite Pairs Stamp Set you won’t go wrong.

Honestly, I think that the main elements that made this card stand out was incorporating Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets into the design. The Black Diamond Craft Metal Sheet background screams classy and embossing it with the Honeycomb Impressions Folder and then sanding the top layer really adds an impressive touch.  Then, adding the Scarlet Red Craft Metal Sheet heart added that punch of color without overpowering the card.

Incorporating Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets into your crafting really makes your projects unique and takes it to the next level.

  1. Monica, I am fastinated with your metal sheets and how you use them! Everything I have seen so far has been just so cool! I signed up to be a demonstrator but I failed to do that so I have been just ordering for myself to met my quarterly amount. That is getting just too expensive though but I will hold on a little longer.

    My question: I am in love with the “Dude” stamp set. I would love to create the manly stuff for my husband just for fun if all else. If I sign up as the demonstrator at the $13.95 per month for 6 months will I be in time to get in on this project? I hate to shell out so much money for my hobby but I think I would really like to make some of these sugar scrubs and such as presents. The way you present these gifts are just incredible!

    Then, after 6 months you can decide each month after that? Your fall and holiday stuff was amazing and I could kick myself for not printing out some of the stuff (our printer was on the fritz at the time). Anyway, I just want to make sure about that.

    Then, we buy the metal sheets from you and some of the other items as needed, correct?

    Once a member, are we able to access past projects – or do we buy your CD for that. I just am trying to get all this straight.

    I think that should do it for now. I am just amazed at all your fun projects and creativity. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Oh and I would love to see the argyle set in the spring mini in some project – like maybe the bow tie? But, that “Dude” set really says buy me and use me!!!!!
