Stampin’ Royalty #197 & Retro Sketches #85

Hey Everyone

The Design Team at Stampin’ Royalty have a colour challenge this week.  I thought it would work well for a man card – I figured it was about time I made another one.

As I said in my previous post, I love a good sketch and the sketch over at Retro Sketches is perfect for my man card.  This sketch will be a keeper!

I needed the retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Classic Convertibles as soon as it saw it.  A few men in family love classic cars so I was determined to mix up the cards in my stash so that every man card I made wasn’t always a boat card.  Here’s my card:

Stampin’ Royalty #179 & The Deconstructed Sketch #104

Hey Everyone

I’m back with a second card today.  This time I’ve created a masculine card.  My nephew had a birthday yesterday and my brother-in-law’s birthday is next weekend.  I went into my man card stash and found that after I give them their cards, I have a total of zero cards left.  When I saw the challenge at Stampin’ Royalty was to create a masculine card, this spurred me into action to create one.

I’ve combined their masculine themed challenge with the sketch challenge at The Deconstructed Sketch.

The designer series paper I’ve used is a retired Stampin’ Up! one called Well Worn that I have barely used.  The image I’ve used is from a retired Stampin’ Up! one called Classic Convertibles.  I thought the grunginess of the papers paired really well with the vintage car.

Here’s my card:
