Despite making my Christmas cards throughout the year so that there is no rush in December, inevitably most of them end up being cute and girlie, just because that's my preferred style.
Before I write out my cards, I write each recipient's name on a mini post-it note. I then spread all my cards over the dining room table, and match recipients to the cards using the post-it stickers.
As usual, after all the appropriate matching had been done, I appeared to have a large number of post-its still in my hand; most of them bearing male names. *sigh* !!
So, I needed some non-fussy cards for some of the guys I send cards to. After a couple of attempts, I finally settled on a design that I liked (cased from here).
I printed the letters J and Y using a large fancy font on my computer and stamped the image between them (with a bit of trial and error!).
I used a stitched square die to give some interest around the image, and layered the panel onto matching coloured cardstock.
I hope you like my quick male(ish) makes! Yes, I know they're still cute, but it's the best masculine style I can manage! I made them in a few colours for variety.
