Good morning everyone. I needed to do some quick cards recently including one for a man so I thought I would share these with you today. They have the same basic layout - just use different colours and embellishments. I have used 2 stamp sets - Tim Holtz French Flight (with framelits) and Tim Holtz Simple Sayings and two layering stencils - harlequin and stripes.
For the female version I took Stormy Sky distress ink and added to white card through the harlequin stencil. I stamped my greeting from Simple sayings. I embellished this with butterflies from French Flight which I stamped with versamark and embossed with white powder. I then added some stormy sky to the rest of the card before using the accompanying framelits to cut out.
A little twine and some rhinestones finished this card.
For the male version I took some pale brown card and used gathered twigs distress ink through the stripes layering stencil. I stamped and cut the pointed hand from the same stamp set (French Flight).
Some string and a few candy dots finished off the card.
I hope these give you some ideas when you need to make some quick cards.
