This week over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Cahllenge group, our twist is to make a masculine card. I'm not very good at masculine cards, to be honest. I love lots of delicate die cuts and sparkle on my cards, but it's good to get out of my comfort zone and create something with a more masculine look.
MHK Designs, our wonderful sponsor this month, has some great masculine digis to work with. I chose to use 2 of her sets for this card: Serene Seaside and the matching Serene Seaside digi papers. You can find these sets and lots of other great digis at
I did a print and cut of the seashells from the digi set using my Silhouette Design Studio software. I also printed 2 of the matching papers and used Gina Marie Designs "Rounded Stitched Rectangles" to die cut them for my card. I had printed the sentiment from the MHK Designs Serene Seaside set (say that 3 times fast, I dare you!) directly onto the digi paper before die cutting it.
I used colored pencils to color the seashells and arranged them with various layers of foam tape to give them some dimension. I added a couple silver seashell sequins (there's another tongue twister!) with glue dots to finish off the card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenge: MHK Designs Challenge
