My Cary Grant Card

Let me explain.

I have hosted an All About Men Stamp Camp for at least 10 years. At these events, I have usually shared 4 cards for men of different ages. I’d include a baby card or a little boy card, a teenager card, a masculine birthday card, and a valentine. This year, I created a graphic to advertise the stamp camp, and my inspiration was Cary Grant, the most virile, suave man who came to mind. Here is the graphic:

Well, this year, that graphic inspired me to create cards for not men of all YEARS, but men of all TYPES.  So with that inspiration, the cards shared at my event included a punch valentine card for those crafty/tool-type men, a thinking of you card for an outdoorsy man, a birthday card for a beach-loving man, and another birthday card for  the suave/sophisticated man (aka Cary Grant).

Now with that explanation, I suppose you want to see my Cary Grant card.  Here it is:

Simple, elegant, classy – almost like a tuxedo.  Music From the Heart stamp set and the Bee DSP were used on this card.  Who’s ready for a glass of champagne and some music on the hi-fi?

All About Men Valentine Card

My customers made this card during my All About Men Stamp Camp last week.  I actually tweaked it a bit and added gold brads on the Real Red piece about the heart corner punch.  This card had pizzazz, but is was not too froo-froo for a male recipient.

The glittery Sending Love DSP is to die for!  I can’t wait to use it all up!  That heart corner punch is darling too!  I absolutely love the font of Whimsical Words.  I am hoping to see more of this style in next year’s catalog.

I enjoy hosting an All About Men Stamp Camp each year.  Most of my customers find it difficult to stamp for the men in their lives.  As I told my stampers, even a floral stamp set can be used to create a masculine-themed card if they plan their colors accordingly.
