Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ Masculine Cards


Happy Friday!!!   Time for a new challenge at Phindy’s Place!    Our challenge this week is Masculine cards/projects.    This seems to always be a tough one – especially with the current popularity of prima flowers, rhinestones and all the bright pinks and other more feminine papers out there for cards.    

I was happy to have the opportunity to use this little cutie for my card ~ Big Boots!   It’s pretty awesome that Phindy has this image available in the following formats ~ African American boy or girl –  boy or girl with glasses – and  caucasian boy or girl.    That’s just one of the many reasons why I love Phindy’s Place!



I thought it would be fun to make the computer generated sentiment look as though each word  has been nailed to the card.   I added a 3mm self-adhesive nail head  to each word “sign” and to the corners of the main mat and I also added a row of 5mm nail heads across the center of the card.    Both sizes of these nail heads are available at Gina K. Designs.  

The DP is from the Basic Grey Marrakech 6×6 paper pad.   I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Labels die for the main image. 

I hope you will join us for this challenge  ~ be sure to stop over at Phindy’s Place Challenge blog for some amazing inspiration for this challenge from the awesome Design Team.
