Fancy Friday Is Here With Manly May!

I loved this Manly May challenge for the Fancy Friday Challenge this month.  Because it is a challenge for me!  But my go-to for guy cards is usually bold & graphic.  And texture, texture, texture.  😊. That was easy to do with the NEW Pattern Party Designer Series Paper & Tailor Made Tags!  Last post, I shared the more "girly" side of the Pattern Party paper.  Today...look at these bold black & white patterns!

Colors: Gray Granite, Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay
Inks: StazOn Jet Black, Gray Granite
Cardstock/Papers: Gray Granite, Bermuda Bay, Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, Gold Foil
Stamps: Art Gallery
Tools: Tailor Made Tags Dies, Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, bone Folder
Accessories: Linen Thread, Matte Black Dots

Can you see all the texture I added?!  Layers of the DSP, then embossed the panel, rolled the corners, sponged, etc.  Some simple embellishments (and "Manly" ones, at that) top it off!  

I love the stitched detail on the tag and the fact that the tag dies come with the accent piece.  Easily cut a fun gold accent using the gold foil paper!

And love to roll corners, when the card calls for it.  Simply break fibers of the cardstock by "curling" the corner with a bone folder.  Then separate the edges.  Easy, breezy and so much texture.  😍

So what are your go-to's when making "manly" cards?!  I want to see!  Hope you have been following us on the Fancy Friday Design Team all month.  (check us out on Facebook or Instagram!) There are so many fun cards to bring you lots of inspiration!

Thank you for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!  Would love to help you with all your papercrafting needs!
