PWC323 - Boys Cards

It's time for Paper Pretties new challenge PWC323  "Boys Cards".  This is a good challenge for me because left to my own devices I usually make feminine cards.  BUT when I need a masculine card my Paper Pretties stamps are the best starting point. There's a slew of images that feature boys and men.  Go to the Paper Pretties store and check out Cooper, Zack and Luke stamps you know there's something for every masculine card you'll ever need to make.

This card features "Right On Par".  I don't understand what it is about golf that gets under peoples skin but almost everyone I know plays so this card won't stay in my stash for long.  When I make cards for men I try to keep the embellishments to a minimum.  I think you can add any kind you like, even bows and bling to masculine cards, you just have to keep them low key. I used gold pearls on the sentiment label and in the corner and that's it.  

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Right On Par - Clear"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and "Cottage Ivy"
paper - Bazzill "Parakeet" card stock; My Favorite Things "Natural" card stock; Echo Park "This and That" Patterned Paper Pack
miscellaneous - copics; Stampin' Up Modern Label punch; gold pearls; Spellbinder Rectangle dies
