Masculine cards

It’s been a while since I showed something created. Decided to put away cardmaking to fully enjoy holiday season.
But now it’s time to come back and I’m showing my three new cards that were made for a challenge blog I design for. The challenge is to create a CAS masculine card. Thanks to all days off during holiday season I had time to fulfill some ideas I had in mind.

The classic approach of masculine card to make it in a shape or pattern of some garment.  I choose diamond sweater pattern. The background is created from scratch by masking and inking. Inked with black first and then with grey, overlapping a bit black diamonds (to achieve some cashmere effect). White stitched lines are made with white pen. Then the sweetest hippo came to play! How adorable he is! And with this mustache even more! He was naked initially, but then I decided that he should be wearing a sweater – so drew one. Added two buttons as finishing touches.Card_150106_01The next card is also inspired by a piece of clothing. In fact by a piece of a piece of clothing – by a cuff. Scored its shape, added stitching with a die. Buttons – are DIY chipboards made from die-cuts.
Added negative “bday”. The base is stamped with pinstripes to give more interest and more masculine look (this is supposed to be like a jacket lol).
