You are My True North Masculine Card!

Pin It
Fun colors for today's masculine Father's Day card.  Remember, these cards could be for more than just Father's Day but they are tending more towards the masculine side of things.

I used the Cricut Going Places cartridge, an oldie but a goodie, and cut the compass at 2--1/2", with many layers.  I pop dotted it onto the front of the card.  I found the striped and chevron papers at Hobby Lobby and it strikes me as nautical looking - perfect for a compass.
I used a die to cut the scallops.

The inside sentiment is from the best manly stamp set around:  Scrappy Moms called "For the Boys":

  3. That depends on card or scrap booking. For a card usually quick and easy. Scrap booking layouts I will spend more time. Thank you for all the great ideas you share.

  10. I seem to always be in a rush, last minute card or gift- so I like simple/fast projects! But then there are times that I want/ need a more complicated project. So both!
    Your True North card is perfect - love the colors and the sentiment!

  15. Love these colors and design. Most of the time I prefer simple so I can get more pages done, but it is fun when I have extra time to do a more complicated layout.

  16. I love doing all kinds of crafts but the vinyl would be great for using with the Cricut and glass etching. I'm really looking forward to this project and also the card is so vibrate!

  20. Love the primary colors on this card. I think men like those kinds of colors, too, so it's a perfect masculine card.

  21. I like to make a bunch of cards ahead of time and then just grab one as needed and add a sentiment. I like the card to have nice colors but be simple so I can use it for many events.

  26. Your card is absolutely adorable! Fun and timely. And, I have that cartridge. Thanks for the great ideas?

  27. I love doing both kinds of cards, it really depends on the time I have to do them. I really love doing detailed and unique cards but the time it takes to make one card like that I could have three or four easier ones.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the bright colors used in your card. Looks very vibrant.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great card! I love the bright colors. I usually think of darker colors when making a masculine card, but you've inspired me to try something a little more cheerful! To answer your question, I keep my projects simple (although I love the detailed projects others create!)

  30. I like simple fast and easy card projects. Seems I am always needing a card for some occasion and do not always have the right one for the occasion, so quick and fast if for me.

  34. I guess I like both kinds of projects - depending on the time available and the mood I am in...

  37. I get great satisfaction from complicated and detailed projects, which then require more time. so, I do simple projects when I need to get the job done quickly. love your card!

  38. Great card! I've always loved the phrase, "you are my true north" since I saw the movie, "Message in a Bottle".

  40. What a great card. I love the colors! Appreciate all your wonderful ideas. You are an inspiration!

  41. That is a really neat card. Thanks, once again, for sharing. You are very crafty. I love that. Simple and fast projects can be fun but I also like more complicated projects. It depends on what I am trying to achieve at the end. If I need party favors, I like them simple shabby and chic. If I am working on a scrapbook layout I try to be more detailed and find something special to add to the page.

  44. Great card, love the colors! I like doing both simple and fast as well as more complicated. Since I work full-time its nice to have ideas on simple and fast cards but on the weekends I tend to spend more time making detailed cards. Thank you for sharing and I'm already dreaming up projects in case I win.........

  47. Love your card. Great colors. Isn't it fun to use a long lost cart.
    The kind of projects I make kind of depend on how much time I have and how my mojo is flowing.

  48. Another fab card Joy! The color combo is perfect! .... It really depends on the alloted time I have for crafting, but I think I mostly go for fast rather than elaborate....Thanks for the chance!

  56. Geez. It really depends on the project...but usually I go for simple and fast; that's what first attracted me to Creative Memories...and Cricut.

  58. I'm new and just found out everyday cricut has closed. That's sad. I was looking forward to going there.
    I hope I'm doing this correctly. My favorite salads are broccoli and tuna. I visited Belarus about 8 years ago. The family I stayed withs Mom made beet salad. It was delicious. Not sure what was in it. I should have gotten the recipe but I don't speak Belarussian. The daughters spoke some English. I should have asked them.

  59. hi Joy..great card! Love the colors and patterns of the papers. I kind of like any style card but lately because of all my things on my "to do" list of things to get done, I like simple. Besides it seems to be the "in"thing right now.

    Hugs,
    Jo
