MFT January Creative Challenge ~ Masculine

Hi there!  It's time for the January Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things!  This month This month's challenge is to make Masculine cards!  I hesitated when signing up for this challenge because masculine cards are a toughie for me, but I'm always up for a challenge, so I jumped in with both feet....sort of!  LOL!

Head on over to Kim's blog for a link to each designer participating in this month's challenge!

I pulled out the set, At the Movies along with the coordinating At the Movies Die-namics, Mini Film Strip Die-namics  and Stacking Stars Die-namics.  I feel that stars are masculine.  Don't ask me why, but I do!  I searched through my vast amount of 6x6 paper pads and finally settled on Authentique's Free Bird series Poised & Warmth.  I think these papers look masculine because of the diamond pattern (masculine to my eye) and I find them to be gender neutral colors.

I stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink, finishing the panel with some stars from the set in Crushed Curry ink.  I cut a piece of corrugated cardboard from my stash with a star die (Spellbinders) and inked the edges with some Vintage Cream ink.   I finished the card with some of the Stacking Stars and some chocolate buttons.  Notice I did not tie the buttons, bows are not masculine :)

Here are the Die-namics I used:
