A Dude Card

I wanted to create a “guy” card and thought making a card with the new Woodland Ducks from Whimsy Stamps would be perfect.  I combined the image with a couple other manly looking stamps to make this very dude-like card.

Okay, for all you Nuvo Crystal Drops fans out there, you will get excited at the end of this post.  I am so thrilled I thought of this, I can hardly stand it.  If its been already done, it is news to me.  So be sure and scroll down for the rest of the info.

Card Details:

This card was very fun to create, because I got to work with different textured looks.  After stamping the Zipper, Brick Background and the Woodland Ducks I colored them all up.  The zipper was then cut out, and added in front of the Woodland Ducks.  This combo was then layered onto the bricks.  The upper and lower panels on the card were created with the excess leftover bricks.  In my opinion  guy cards should not have bows, buttons or frilly things, so I decided to use the metallic Silver Lining Nuvo Crystal Drops as accents.  The top two photos were taken prior to the next step…

Now for the cool thing I was talking about…get ready to squeal!  Take the metallic Nuvo, and place them where you want them on your card.  When they are completely dry, use a blade and make a line or a X to make them look like screws for all of them “guy” cards.

  1. Spectacular! Your creativity never ceases to amaze me! Now to go shopping on the Whimsey site.

  2. I never thought of scoring Nuvo Drops – fantastic idea. And I love this masculine card with the idea of a zipper with brick and ducks – very original and great coloring.

  3. Love this card! And the tip to make the Nuvo drops look like screws! I wonder if you can make the copper drops look like they were hammered for that nailhead effect?

    1. Oh, copper nailheads would be awesome. I bet if you make the drop bkg enough it would work using a stylus.

  4. I’ve been waiting to use that zipper stamp; can’t wait to build off your idea! I have a great stamp of a buck that I think will work great. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent!
