Hi friends. Today I have a masculine card to share and yes, I included some ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon! My cards just don’t feel complete until I add some ribbon.
While I don’t usually go for bows on a masculine card, I think you can always incorporate ribbon and this is the perfect type of card to use up some of your shorter ribbon scraps.
I created the sentiment on my computer and I ran a strip of Metal Gray Diamond Satin across the center of the card under the sentiment and added a piece of 1/4″ Black Grosgrain on top of that. I cut the ends of the grosgrain in points for a more ‘manly’ look.
My favorite adhesive for attaching ribbon to my project is Scor-Tape. It works wonderfully on ribbon and it’s available in many different widths at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I wanted to play along with the Cheery Lynn Designs Masculine Challenge today, so I pulled out my dies to see what I could find with a masculine feel. I ended up selecting my Royal Scandinavian Doily and Burlap Border dies. I cut a piece of black cardstock a little larger than I wanted my finished piece to be. I covered the back of that with Stick It! adhesive and then used the small center square of the Scandinavian Doily to cut the background. I evenly spaced the little squares and cut out 6 on the background paper. I was looking for a wrought iron grate type look.
