Looking for some inspiration for a masculine card? Donna has a fabulous tutorial that she shares with you below for this gorgeous fun card! It’s ideal for the younger men in your lives that are so often hard to create projects for!

“I, like so many of you used to struggle for ideas when it came to making cards for the males in my life, especially the teenagers. Well, that is now a distant memory as the amazing Just For Men Collection has everything needed to make fab cards for our lovely boys.” – Donna Mosley

Step 1
– Create a 15cm card blank from black card and emboss the whole of the front using the Checkerplate embossing folder.


Step 2 – Distress the edges of a 13cm square of patterned paper from the Bright Paper Pad & attach to the card front at an angle.

Distress the edges of a 8cm x 15.3cm piece of co-ordinating patterned. Layer onto a piece of black card and attach to the front of card across the centre as shown.

Trim a co-ordinating patterned paper to 9cm square & stamp the Skateboarder from the Street Wise set in the centre, then stamp randomly around the edge. Layer on a 10cm square of embossed black card and attach to the card at an angle as shown.

Step 3 – Stamp a sentiment from the Rock Star stamp set onto a leftover piece of paper from the topper you created and layer onto an embossed piece of black card, then attach to card.

Step 4 – Die cut a selection of cogs and gears from the die set and attach to the card around the topper as shown.

Tip – Waste not, want not – use the tiny rectangles that are waste pieces from the large cog as embellishments.
