Gina K. DT Hop.....For The Guys!!

Smiley from millan.net

Welcome to our Gina K. Designs Team hop where we are showcasing cards with a masculine theme/design.

You should have just hopped over from the fabulous Jimmi's Blog!!!!

I often struggle with masculine designs....being a girlie girl who loves pink and bling ya know! LOL  But I managed a masculine AND a clean and simple card!  Are you surprised??  LOL


I just love this peaceful little rowboat image from Theresa's set Follow Your Dreams!!  It's a perfect set for the guy cards we need to make!!  I used some of the "guy" colors of the Pure Luxury cardstock.....Sweet Mango, Tan Leather, Green Apple and Chocolate.  I even kept my embellies minimal with the twine and brads.  I did add just a touch of Stickles to the water though!  LOL

Now you'll want to hop over the amazing Melanie's Blog and check out her gorgeous designs!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~

  9. Lee, this is a super man card. It is full of texture and a neat focal image with just the right amount of bling that would be attractive to the masculine recipients. Way to go!

  18. Your color scheme and the brads make this unusual enough, but the added shine in the water and the minimal white space on the boat make this a truly unusual and wonderful man's card.
