Handmade Cards with a Masculine Twist. . . . with Elena

Hello BoBunny Friends,

Today, It's me Elena, on the blog and ready to share with you a bunch of masculine cards I made using Essentials collections by BoBunny.


Well, I guess that many people are struggling with their creativity when it comes to making the cards for the men in your life.  What to do for Cards for Him?  I feel that way seems much easier to add flowers and pretty stuff than use other embellishments.


So I started thinking what I can do, and in the end I created four cards, each with their own distincly, not "feminine" look.


  Initially I started mixing the patterns from the Double Dot collections. I took Chevron, Vintage and Dot packs and ... mixed them , it was fun and easy to do.


I also created the layers using the dies, mostly Selfie Dies.

However I also added Dreamcatcher Laser Cut chipboard that I painted a bit with acrylic paints and the powders.


To finish my cards I also added the brads and the jewels.


I like adding stitching to my cards, and when it comes to male cards you can do it with any thread colors.


And so. .  .Ta Da!!!!  Here are my finished cards, for the men and boys in your life, and even the ladies too!  Who doesn't love getting a thoughtfully handmade card!!!



Thanks for stopping in today for some BoBunny inspiration!
