Making masculine cards can be a challenge, but with these Creative Emoji Stamps, it’s easy to create some fun cards for the special men in your life. Emojis are so trendy and many of us use them on a daily basis on our smartphones! Imagine creating some imaginative cards with these expressive emoji faces! They’re delightful, right?
In this video, Janette creates 2 cards that are easy to adapt for men of all ages and also for any occasion. The first is a watercoloured stamped background card. She uses a few emoji faces to stamp the piece of white card to create a fun patterned background. She then watercolours the background to add some vibrant colour to the card. Don’t shy away from using some bright colours when making masculine cards.
Men love colour too and it’s refreshing to receive a card that isn’t just in browns (standard masculine card colours). Janette also adds a hint of shimmer with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. This clear sparkle overlay pen gives the blue background a subtle glimmer that’s not too over the top.
Usually masculine cards are in browns or greys, but this doesn’t mean you can’t add a little metallic embossing to the mix. For the second card Janette creates an embossed copper background with the Creative Emoji stamps. Embossing in copper or silver is an easy way to add interest to your masculine card!
Here are some more masculine cardmaking tips and takeaways from the video tutorial:
- Bakers Twine is a great way to add texture to your masculine cards. It’s a unisex element and there are so many colours to pick from!
- Don’t shy away from adding some subtle shimmer or even a bit of glitter. Embossing a sentiment in copper or metallic glitter like Ranger Copper Tinsel is an easy way to add interest to your card.
- Men will appreciate you taking the time to make them something handmade, no matter what you use. Don’t be scared to experiment!
