I went with a clean and layered design for this weeks Masculine Monday card.
I started by stamping the mug, covering it with a mask and then stamping the Happy Birthday sentiment 6 times. When I removed the mask to see the sentiment 'fall' behind the mug it made me smile. Is that weird? It's what I love about this technique.
Next I took some Altenew Artist Markers and added some swipes of color over the Happy Birthday sentiments. Something to note - the markers actually smeared the sentiments a little. I was going to redo it but then I decided I liked the look. I added a little shading to the mug and the foam and then covered the mug with crystal effects.
I matted it onto a piece of black cardstock, then layered it onto some retired designer paper from Stampin' Up and finally onto the card base.
While I say this is a masculine card it could just as easily be for a woman who likes beer.
The biggest key to making a masculine card or any card for that matter is thinking about the person you're making it for and choosing colors and images that they would like.
