Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop. This week we are creating masculine birthday cards and I’ve used the gorgeous Nature’s Harvest Suite.

Harvest Meadow Suite

When I first saw the July to December Mini Catalogue and found the Harvest Meadow Suite I knew I had to have it. Check it out …

With all the elements in the suite I knew it would be perfect for just about any occasion … ladies, men, sympathy and so much more!

Here’s what I’ve created for you today …

This card is quite quick and easy to do and works well for a Masculine Birthday card. Sometimes it can be hard to make a nice masculine card. Images and dies like leaves, grasses and such work well. I also love the Cork Paper that is part of this suite.

The Cork Paper is awesome. It’s nice and thin so doesn’t add too much bulk to a card and it adds great texture to the card which is perfect for a guys card.

I cut my foliage pieces out of Mint Macaron and then just used a blending brush to colour the tops with some Soft Suede Ink. Our blending brushes are great for all sorts of techniques – from simple colouring to masking and blended backgrounds.

That little label die is awesome and comes from the Frightful Tags Dies set.

I do hope you like my Masculine Birthday card. If you’d like a sample of the cork paper please be sure to let me know and I’ll get a piece in the post to you.

Let’s go hopping …

I do hope you are inspired by the projects you are about to see …

Please feel free to comment on the posts and let the girls know how much you enjoyed them.

I also hope we’ve inspired you to create something this week. A little creative therapy goes a long long way to boost our mental health. It also improves the well being of those that receive our cards. Why not make a card, or grab one you’ve made previously, and write a note inside and post it to a friend or family member and brighten their day.

We also need to keep our postal service going to sending a card actually benefits so many!

Thanks for stopping by and see you latte …
