The Vintage Veranda & Hero Arts Masculine challenge

Via Louise I heard about this new site and as I love vintage I will pop over now and again when time allows! Go have a look!
This is a card I posted on there, with an ATC.

These cards I posted for the challenge on making a masculine card on the Hero Arts website for this week. I NEVER make these but now I rather like too! I think I believed that men didn't like receiving cards but my DH told me I was completely wrong and that men DO like receiving cards!! Actually they can be made in a real rough and tumble way..

I just stapled the corrugated paper to the card stock after I had sewn the button over the tag to keep it in place on the second card. For the first card I just happened to have blue corrugated paper stacked away as I didn't think it would ever come in handy, but it has.

Have a great weekend!


  1. FABULOUS idea for making masculine cards. That corrugated paper just shouts MANLY. And it's simple and inexpensive too!
    Thanks for the pitch for the VV, too!

  2. Beautiful designs. I absolutely love the top one. The colour mix & the stamps used are fabulous.
    Great masculine cards too, these men are always a struggle to make for but thankfully there are only two in my life my Dad & my BIL.

  3. Gorgeous cards Jacqueline! I love the ones with the corrugated cardstock. Very masculine indeed.

  4. Weer zo mooi! Ik zit altijd hardop commentaar te geven als ik langs de verschillende blogs surf. Het is mijn mannen hier opgevallen dat ik bij de jouwe altijd ademloos: oh wow...zit te zuchten, hahaha

  5. Your cards are always so beautiful and vintage... I wondered what you would do with a masculine card... and now I know and they are still gorgeous and manly. Great cards.

  6. great masculine cards! I always struggle with those, too. You've given fine examples.

  7. Very beautiful things you' ve made!

  8. Great idea for those masculine cards! One to remember.

  9. I especially like the first card.....gorgeous!

    Funny...I just saved some corrugated cardboard today to put in my stash! I love it on masculine cards too!


Thanks so much for your visit - I so appreciate it!
