Cards 4 Him Online Class Blog Hop

As most of you know I make lots of masculine cards, and love to share them with you.  Why?  Simply because there aren't a ton of ideas out there for making masculine cards.  Catherine, Maureen, Iwona (Chupa) and Sandy Allnock have teamed up to create a class just to show us some fabulous ideas for making cards for the men and boys in our lives.  It's called Cards for Him.


This is by far my favorite Online Class from these ladies!  I was able to get an early peek at the class and now I have so many ideas swimming around in my head.  You will likely see me using the class for my Masculine Monday posts all month long.


Can you guess what lesson this card is from?  To make my textured background I used embossing paste and a stencil, then poured black embossing powder over the paste.  The paste was still wet so the embossing powder stuck to it.  Before the paste dried I used a heat tool to melt the embossing powder and "puff" up the paste.



You can join the class today by clicking HERE now.  (or after the blog hop)
