Masculine Cards - Imaginarium Designs

...and Welcome,
It's Alison here today and I just have a few projects to share with you,
I did have a couple more planned... alas our recent relocation and family 'stuff' mean my 24 hours each day had significantly reduced 'spare' time!!
I like to give myself a little theme and chose Masculine,
so I've created a couple of quick and easy cards for the Men in our life.

Masculine Cards

The cards are all made with the mini paper pack from Feature Arts Paper and is a great range about Cruising.
I simply cut some squares of patterned paper and layered it with some cork sheet, a canvas star and a couple of pieces of inked chipboard.

Another quick and simple design - a couple of squares of patterned paper, inked and adhered to the centre of a card base. Trim a striped piece into a banner, and a cluster of embellishments - chipboard cogs have been inked and then coated with Glossy Accents or similar to finish.

Chipboard pieces are such a great way to add a bit of jazz to a simple card. The negative or rubbish from a cog set is inked and then used as a cute frame on a focal point.

A couple of squares of patterned paper, cork sheet, clear stickers and a few pieces of a great mixed cog design roughly inked to add a bit of a weathered look. A couple of extra pieces of metal to finish.

It isn't always easy to create cards for the men but maybe try some simple designs for you next cards?

I snipped apart the layers around a clock piece - one for around the face inked in orange - the circle in the bottom right hand corner and top left hand are one piece snipped into two pieces to 'stretch' the chipboard a little further! 
The stamping is from one of Fiona Paltridge's Aal and Create sets..

The centre of the clock inked in pale blue and clustered with a flair button, pink crochet doiley and resin flower in orange - a couple of embellishments from the May D-lish JAP kit.

The title HAPPY DAYS sprayed in white to highlight the beautiful script - a few little heat pearls sitting along the chipboard circle to finish.
