Now let’s see how our amazing Design Team made their Cards for Guys!
Franci combined the large tree from Christmas Dreams with the snowboarding and popsicle snacking Yeti or Not cutie on her clean and simple design! She added a colorful Offset Sayings: Christmas greeting!
Christy created an amazing underwater Christmas card for her scuba-diving enthusiast brother! She used Christmas Fishes, You Are Sublime and Mermaid for You!
Samantha‘s birthday card features some cool guy-friendly colors to create the inky background for the One in a Chameleon critter! She turned the Leafy Tree Backdrop (die cut from the back side of the Fall Fling 6×6 paper) around to use it on the right side of her card, then she die cut it again from kraft cardstock to layer over the top! She included a Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday sentiment in a Say What? Pets speech bubble.
Jessica‘s Yeti or Not birthday card is fun and cool and perfect for the guys in your life! She created the awesome mini scene with Stitched Mountain Borders!
If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, Karin‘s card is timely inspiration for you! She used images from Smooth Sailing and created a great ocean scene with Tropical Backdrop!
This charming birthday card by Joyce will make anyone’s day! She added a hat from Dad+Me to the character from Screen Time and made a Fall scene using the trees and apples from Tree Before ‘n Afters! The Build-A-House has a fun brick pattern and some friendly birds from Open Me!
Caly‘s Beam Me Up birthday card has a fun interactive element courtesy of the Let’ Toast Pull Tab Add-On! She created an awesome inky backdrop for this outer space scene!
Clearly our Design Team thinks that snowboarding and yetis are perfect for Cards for Guys! Samantha M added her signature style with an ink blended and splattered background and the stripey accent of black and white! She resisted the pull to add sequins or glitter to keep this fun design guy-friendly!
Jenn‘s Ready Set Snow snow globe design has just enough sparkle to suggest snow but she kept this card clean, simple and colorful! She used a mix of Lawn Fawn ink in Merman, Cilantro and Minty Fresh to create the background. Her snowmen are stamped with River Rock ink for a toned down look!
We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 63 tomorrow!
