Scribbles Designs Challenge #65 - Midway - Make It Masculine

Hi, guys! I am back with my fourth post of the day! If you are looking for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop, my Sketch N Scrap reveal, or my Sketches In Thyme PL Style reveal, please scroll on down.

We are at the midway point of Challenge #65 - Make It Masculine - at Scribbles Designs. We want to see your masculine cards - use blues, greens, browns, stripes, plaids, etc. - just make it masculine.

I'm not sure how "masculine" my card actually looks...but I tried to put a masculine spin on an anniversary card. 

For my card, I have used a free image from the Scribbles store - #F 10 - Light Bulb (free).

I printed off the light bulb, created a circle mask with a piece of cardstock and a circle die and sponged some distress in around the light bulb to create the "glow". I also used my distress inks and a watercolor pen to color in the base of the bulb. I printed the sentiment on a piece of vellum and stapled it to the circle, and then I also printed "Happy Anniversary" and cut it into a banner piece for the bottom of my card.

This light bulb paper from Shimelle's - True Stories - 6x6 paper pad was the perfect backdrop for this image.

I think this is a fun alternative to the hearts and flowers anniversary cards that you usually find! What do you think?

Head on over to Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog to see more inspiration for masculine cards. We would love to see your take on the challenge, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!

  1. Great card, Lori! I think your card is neutral and therefore could go from a wife to her husband at any age level. Glad you had your lightbulb moment (ha!) in putting the freebie image with a printed paper that you already had!
