With Men in Mind – by Sheri Holt

Today is Sheri’s day to post and she did a super fun card for Father’s Day with one of the new masculine paper pads from Authentique. I am also sharing a masculine sympathy card that I created with another of the new masculine themed collections from Authentique, so we have a lot to show you today. Let’s start with Sheri’s card:


Definitely a retro Father’s Day feel going on here!

I love how FUN this card is.

The image/sentiment is cut from the paper pad.

You can find Sheri’s post on her blog here.

Sheri used:

Paper: Dapper by Authentique

Dies: Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Stars

Ribbon: May Arts 5/8″ Faux Canvas – Red

Embellishments: Enamel DotsChristmas Delivery by Carta Bella

Adhesives: Scor Tape, 3D Foam Squares

Harky1 500x559

And this is the flat for mailing sympathy card I made using the Rugged collection from Authentique.

I am totally in love with this collection for the guys! Beautiful browns and blues.

This card design is so simple and I’ve done similar before, but I do think it is just so perfect for a sympathy card for a man. This is a card design I keep going back to.

And I truly love the 23rd Psalm for sympathy cards.

And here’s the inside of my sympathy card.

For this card I used:

Stamps: Deepest Sympathy by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Paper: Rugged by Authentique

Dies: Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Rectangles

Adhesives: EZ Runner

SS-Sent004 Deepest Sympathy WEB 300514

Deepest Sympathy by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

This set offers a variety of sentiments for both inside and out that can be stacked together or used alone.

This acrylic block with the grid lines makes it so easy to stack sentiments. Get them straight on the block and stamp all at once, like I did on the card inside.
