Happy Thursday everyone. I'm L.B. from Cool Beans By L.B. and I am happy to be back for my day at Cricut FANatics. Recently, we heard from our followers that you would like to see more masculine themed projects. I have a lot of wonderful men in my life who enjoy getting my cards, but I find it hard to make these. I am taking the challenge. For the next few months I am going to do my best to share a masculine themed card or project with you on the 21st! I hope I can give you a little inspiration. Here we go with round one:
Know anyone who loves golf? I do and I came up with this cute Valentine for him. I started with the All Sports cartridge that has some great golf images (for male or females). I selected the guy swinging because I think he is the most fun. I cut him and all is layers at 3.75 inches. I laid everything out on my Gypsy before putting the papers on the mat and cutting. Next came the gluing, which I did on the mat (a few small pieces)
I was really pleased with how easy the layer went together on him (although I drew in the face because I must have thrown away the small cuts). Next, came the phrasing.... I loved this "fore!" cut from a different golfing page in All Sports and it got me thinking: "Fore you!"
I cut the "fore" and its layer at about an inch an half height and then cut this fun "you" cut from Graphically Speaking for the inside.
I used a mesh texture embossing folder for some more fun on my backing layers and put it all together. I hope you enjoyed part one of this journey and will come visit us again soon.
Cartridges: All Sports (golfer page 47) and Graphically Speaking
Additional Supplies: The Paper Studio Mesh texture embossing folder, Recollections papers
