I know we all struggle making masculine cards. We love to add glitter and bling to projects but they are not always the right look for cards for men. I was making cards for my church when I realised I needed some more manly looking cards. I came up with some simple cards that look really nice.
I made a cut file that looked like out church logo. Then a clean italicised font to cut out the sentiment. I used the negative of the image rather than piecing all those little bits of paper to the card. The inside pieces of the letters where inserted into the p, g, and o's to make it easier to read.
The middle panel of the card was embossed to add some interesting texture.
