Welcome fellow crafters.
It's Tuesday so it must mean a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz, where we aim to show you that making masculine cards isn't that difficult!
This week our theme is -


So anything goes really so long as we can see texture, be it embossing, fabric in fact anyway you can think of to add it.
Here is my inspiration card.

My son is thirty this year, my hasn't the time flow by, so his friends are that age too and I thought I would make a card for future use.
I started by cutting out the 30 using some MFT dies from a white card panel which I then embossed with a Cuttlebug ef. I stamped the the 'th' in black and then added the die cut ring of red.
I wanted a bit more interest for the inside of the numbers so I covered some white card with washi tape and added it on the red card under the numbers before putting on the embossed panel on foam pads and mounted the red flat on the base card.
A very simple card to make once I had come up with the idea!
For more inspiration pop over to the main blog for more masculine inspiration from the DT and our two GDs.
