Masculine Card Workshop

I always find it difficult to come up with masculine card ideas when birthdays and father days roll around.  So with today's post I decided to get a jump on some birthdays.  The extent of my creativity is limited so while I exercised that creativity to the extent it would go, I also garnered ideas from some very talented fellow consultants and will give them credits where due.  If you are interested in purchasing one of these kits, see details at end of post.

This is from my masculine card workshop.  Here are the 6 cards we created:

This first card is my own creation that was inspired by a mustache card by Jen Rubio.  I thought it was so cute and of course, "DAD" could be replaced by "golfer" "grandpa" "griller" or even something like "day".  Those mustache cards are SO fun!  Click to see details.

The next card was inspired by Allisa Chilton who is another amazing and creative consultant!  The card is  meant for a masculine youth birthday.

The next card was again inspired by Allisa Chilton and is intended as a small child masculine card.

Now we move into the Tommy WOTG cards.  My first card was inspired by one that I made for Father's Day for my son-in-law.  Making these little shirts with the Artiste are SO much easier than trying to find the right size origami shirt and lies so much flatter!

The next card was pretty much a shameless copy (because I loved it SO much) from Michelle Bowley-- another very talented consultant.

The final card was inspired by Brittany Sanfillippo.  I was looking for a card that used the outdoor denim, honey and white strip B&T papers of Tommy.  She had a beautiful card that fit the bill.
