Hello card makers,

Today I have a card offering for those of you that ask for suggestions for a male card. This card would work for almost any card giving occasion. I made it using the newly released Maker Forte stamps. Changing the sentiment or the colors of paper and ink would certainly change the look and mood of the card.

keeping with the masculine feel I decided to go with darker colors. The base for this standard A-2 card is dark gray and the layer one is light gray. Not pictured is a thin frame cut out of the dark gray that I decided to add after arranging all the pieces. On the layer one I stamped various images from the ’Ticket to Ride’ stamp set in blue or black. In addition to stamping the background I splattered black paint over the entire layer.

Next I chose to stamp a car from the ’On Track’ stamp set and using Copic markers colored it red. Because the focal image was red I decided to stamp the generic sentiment from the ’Sassy Sentiments’ set also in red.

The final step was to arrange all the pieces onto the layers to verify I liked the look. The sentiment and the car were attached using foam tape to add dimension to the card. Finally a few enamel dots were added.

The only thing left to do is find the perfect recipient for the card. I am sure some car lover will be having a birthday soon.
