Masculine Collage Card

Today’s card is quick and easy, and great for the man in your life.

I am loving using the Gentleman’s Emporium Collection, and have found it gives me lots of ideas.

I began this card with a craft base, then cut another layer of the same cardstock for the top. I chose a reasonably uncluttered piece of design paper to add for the main layer, and glued that down after distressing both with a distressing tool and then with distress ink. I used Vintage Photo.  This helps to give it an aged look.


I then took one of the pieces of design paper that emulates a newspaper page. I tore that into a strip about half the width of my cardfront and distressed it, then glued it down.

I added the two gentlemen from the Gentleman’s Emporium Ephemera pack, then used the 4 Suits mini die which I cut out in black cardstock, and popped that slightly behind the strip.

Last of all, I stamped a greeting on some scrap dsp, then distressed it too.

I’m pretty happy with the result.

  1. Great masculine card Cheryl :o)

    I’ve actually struggled with this paper set a bit because i’m not used to ye olde style images etc… challenging but all ideas are helpful :o)

  2. Thanks so much, Verna!

    Karen, I have the opposite. Perhaps that’s because I make a lot of vintage style cards? I don’t know.

    The trick is, I think, using the images on the paper. Make your card around those images.

    I will be adding more cards using this page, so look out for them.

  3. I’m sure it’s because I don’t really ever make vintage style cards, the struggle is real! lol. I also think I probably struggled cos the card I made for my Dad was difficult as I don’t associate him with those sorts of images…. though I plan to use that awesome car foil stamp on his father’s day card probably. Thanks for the inspiration, keep it coming!
