Alphabet Press masculine card



Ask almost any cardmaker which cards they struggle with the most and they will answer “masculine”. For me, masculine doesn’t present quite as much of a problem as “young masculine”. This is for my nephew, who turned 11– not an easy age to make a card for, unless you’re willing to find out what the latest fad is and get busy with some punch art.

So I went with the gorgeous new Alphabet Press embossing folder, used on Early Espresso Core’dinations cardstock and sanded slightly. I added a greeting on a panel made with the Chalk Talk Framelits and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.

But it was still missing something. Aha! A finger! Vintage, masculine and suitable for almost any occasion. Love it.

Oh, by the way, inside the card it says “{YOU} Happy Birthday”
