A Proper Gentleman - Masculine Cards - Scrapbook Parade Class

Even though I don't often make them, I do enjoy making masculine cards. Most men can't be bothered with cards, but if done right they can appreciate them more than they might admit. The key I find, is to keep them looking simple even if they really aren't.

After preparing for the Father's Day gift class, there is enough of the paper left over to have two masculine card classes. I've prepared cards for one class, and we'll see about a second. The focus of these cards is the paper, so mainly there is paper cutting and not much stamping and techniques.

Here they are.

And here they are individually for a better look.

You'll have noticed that a couple of the cards have a sentiment banner or tab that is blank. I left it that way as in class they will be left up to the customer to decide what they wish to stamp. The rest are sentiment free like an all-occasion card. Though, there is room to add a sentiment if they wish to.

Thank you for stopping by to see what some of my future classes will be. I have tons more to work on as come September we wish to have the last four months of the year ready for signing up. So I hope you'll keep checking in to see what fun things we'll be doing for the rest of the year, and to inspire your own creative versions.

Happy crafting everyone!
