Take a little trip with me through retro TV Land and imagine yourself sitting in a classroom. As you look around, you see 'Greasers' everywhere and Afros are the stylin' hairdo. The teacher approaches the blackboard and writes, "Who dislikes making masculine cards?" Suddenly from behind you, you hear..."Ooh Ooh Ooh, Mr. Kotter-r-r-r, pick me, pick me!!" That's right, I'm sitting right behind you playing the role of the lovable Arnold Horshack.
What is it about masculine cards that cause my brain to seize up? Well, it's several factors, but for the sake of not dragging this post out further, I'd like to share my contribution to the world of manly-man cards and a fun little tip too.
This week at Our Creative Corner, I will be hosting and the theme I have selected is Make Mine Mushy! There is a little twist, I've also designed a sketch to use. Here's the skinny...
Create a Valentine card using the sketch below
The sketch can be rotated and we need to be able to see all the elements from the original sketch, but used however you like. Follow it exactly or alter it as long as all elements are present.
Now let me show you a closeup of one of the elements....
Want a fun tip to add more texture to your masculine cards?
Well then, I mustache you to read the following picture....
So there you go...It's almost Valentine's Day and now you have a sketch to work with, some goofy inspiration, a little nostalgia from times past and if you step over to Our Creative Corner, you'll find even more outstanding motivation from my team. Just remember, MAKE MINE MUSHY!!
Hugs n' Happy Crafting,
