I love the Stampin' Up! stamp set Need for Speed for masculine cards! Of course its great for plenty of women as well, but I know that often we feel more limited when it comes to ideas for cards for men. Perhaps that is slowly changing as more men love receiving flowers now, but if the guy you are making a card for isn't into that, this is a great option! You can't go wrong with the Need for Speed stamp set with the choices of a boat, an airplane, a car and a four wheeler!
Have you tried the new Core-dinations Card Stock? I ran this Cherry Cobbler Core-dinations through the Stripes embossing folder. Then I sanded it with the Stampin' Up! Sanding System to give it a "road" look. The Crumb Cake card stock was put through the Square Lattice embossing folder. All of the embossing folder choices add to the look of cards, don't they?
The images in the Need for Speed stamp set are done in a bold, sketched look. They look great just stamped for quick and easy cards, and they are also fun to water color. I used the Aqua Painters with a drop of the Cherry Cobbler Ink Refill. You can watch this in the stamping video tutorial here:
Think of the different men that on your list of people you make hand made cards for. What are their interests? Do they go for cards, boats, anything with wheels? I have a feeling there might be quite a number of men on your list who would fit this description!
I love the ideas of using the airplane for someone going on a trip! Wouldn't it be fun to surprise him (or her) with a "have fun" card?
Whether it is for birthdays, graduations, Father's Day or any other occasion, you will love using Need for Speed for masculine cards!
