‘Thinking of You’
Masculine Card & Envelope

By Katelyn Grosart

 

Hey, G45 Fans! This month, I’ve been busy playing with the Olde Curiosity Shoppe - Deluxe Collector’s Edition and ended up creating a fabulous masculine “Thinking of You” card with matching envelope. Many of us create “Thinking of You” or “Get Well Soon” cards for females, but we seem to forget that men can get sick or may just need something in the mail to uplift their spirit. So, you’ll want to make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my Thinking of you Masculine Card & Envelope”.

Tip: Instead of using a regular envelope, use one of the Regular Policy Envelopes.

Tip: When embellishing your envelope, mix the fussy cut images in with a few different Staples from the Staples Collection.

 

Tip: To adhere the keys and keyholes, you can use either Glue Dots or Glossy Accents.

Tip: Adhere a Metal Keyhole behind and in the middle of the banner sentiment.

Tip: Mix both Thin Foam squares and 3D Foam squares when layering the fussy cut images on your card front.

Tip: Because there is so much going on on the right hand side of the card, keep the left side lighter to give your card balance.
