Hello Meraki Friends! It's Candice happy to be with you this Monday! I have a great masculine birthday card for that special guy in your life for you today!
I used these products found in the Crafty Meraki store for my slimline design:
- MFT Happy Campers stamps & coordinating dies
- MFT BB Adorable Adventures stamps (sentiment)
- Crafty Meraki Trafalgar Square Para-dies
- MFT Outside the Box Level Up dies (banner)
- Oxide inks-fossilized amber & scattered straw
I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.
For the background, I trimmed a piece of pattern paper a little smaller than my card front. I then die cut one of the slimline square frame from dark brown cardstock and another one from Bristol Smooth cardstock for the stitched inserts. I inked the inserts with fossilized amber and scattered straw.
Next, I stamped the campers, scenery, and accessories on watercolor paper, colored them with Zig watercolor markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I arranged them into my popped up frame either gluing down or using foam tape to give dimension to the scene. I finished by die cutting my stitched banner and stamping the sentiment in brown ink!
I hope you are inspired to try these colors and design for your next masculine card, I know they aren't the easiest for me!
