Spring Training Bloghop: Masculine Card TutorialsPosted by Operation Write Home on Apr 6, 2013 in Bloghops/Events, Stars and Stamps, Tutorial | 329 comments
Welcome to our bloghop celebrating GUYS! Our awesome company partners are joining us in sharing tutorials today for various kinds of masculine cards….so much to learn! Many of us make pink and purple cards a lot, and finding some new techniques and tricks will help OWH put together better mixes in our boxes of cards going out to deployed heroes. Many of them write home to women – but many are women writing home to their fellas, both husbands and dads!
OWH is working toward our Father’s Day deadline at the end of April. Yes, Father’s Day! Mother’s Day cards are in the mail to our heroes, so it’s time to move on. Once you’ve gotten through the hop and gathered some inspiration, go make some guy cards and send them in for our heroes to write home on! Note that we can take anytime themes anytime of year…and we always can use more masculine cards.
Tuxedo Card Tutorial
Our tutorial here on the Stars and Stamps blog is for this fun and elegant Tuxedo Card – the “Hello handsome” sentiment is in the Year-Round Sentiments fundraiser set from Hero Arts, and paper for the tie is by My Mind’s Eye.
Step by step instructions are in this detailed pdf, and a summary of the steps can be seen in the image below.
Hope you can make some classy guy cards using this tutorial! Don’t forget that cards folding this direction (along the short side) get tucked all the way into their envelopes!
