Altenew Academy – Cards For the Guys

Hello and welcome.  Today, my blog post is about making masculine cards and I\’ve chosen to do a color blocking background.  Fun, bright and eye-catching.  
Altenew Academy Cards for the Guys using Color Blocking with Altenew Mega Alphabet T die and Large Thanks Sentiment die.
I started by cutting four 2×2 squares from brightly colored card stock.  My inspiration came from Jennifer Rzasa and her class on Pop Art Color Blocking.  Once the squares were cut, I taped them together, trimmed the edges for a nice even line and then backed with craft foam for dimension.  

Next, I die cut the \”T\” from bright blue card stock and the \”thanks\” from lavender cardstock.  I die-cut each three times and then carefully glued them together for nice dimension.   I initially was going to back them with foam but didn\’t like the white shadow which I thought distracted from all the bright bold colors.  

I made a 4 1/4\” x 4 1/4\” card base and then attached the color blocked panel.  I weighted it for a few minutes with an acrylic block
Supplies Used:
Altenew Mega Alphabet T die
Altenew Large Thanks sentiment die
6 shades of brightly colored card stock
tape
liquid glue
craft foam
white cardstock for base.

I am also playing along with: Try It On Tuesday \”Cut It Out!\” Challenge  This card is all about cutting as every element was either cut with a paper trimmer or die cut.  

I really like how the card turned out and think I will do some more color blocking in the near future.

I am so pleased that you stopped by!

It is summer so I wanted to make a fun bright tropical card.

I did a bit of pattern stamping with Sunny Studio\’s Tropical Paradise set.  I think these images are so fun to color!  I used Copic markers and put in some white gel pen accents.  I also added tiny little jewels to the flower center.
