Man Week: Custom Papers for Masculine Cards

Hi everyone!

We sure hope you've been enjoying Man Week!

The fun is not quite over. We've got a couple more great ideas for masculine cards to share with you today and on Friday. 

Tobi Crawford is up today with a fun card that features a custom DIY patterned paper. Check this out.

Father's Day card by Tobi Crawford for TechniqueTuesday.comCreating your own custom patterned paper is a great idea for making masculine cards! You can pick a manly color scheme, such as Tobi did by using green, blue and dark green together.

And you can pick design icons that aren't too girly! Tobi made her patterned paper by picking a couple stamps from the Smiles Borders clear stamp set and then stamping them repeatedly on a piece of cardstock. The end result? A cool patterned paper stamped by her!

Stars and triangles aren't the only the designs you can make cool DIY patterned papers for guy cards with. For example, take the tie from Technique Tuesday's Mister Man stamp set. Stamp it over and over and you'll get an equally cool patterned paper.

You're Cool Man card from TechniqueTuesday.comFor added visual interest, stamp the tie on dark cardstock and then add a little color with a white pencil. Take it over the top by doodling some designs inside each tie.

Got a favorite fella you want to make a card for? We've got even more ideas in the Guy Gallery for cards for dads, brothers, boyfriends and more.
