Cardz 4 Guys Guestie (Week 1) BLACK AND WHITE MANLY CARD

As you know I am more than happy to make manly cards (better as making flowers cards :) am so bad at coloring flowers...I must confess :)) and Helen from Cardz 4 Guys offering me being Guest Designer at that challenge...I am very very happy :) I will be guest on the challenge blog for a month also = 4 weeks...hope I can inspire you to make Manly card and I can show you how easy to make :)

At the first week the theme is Black and White:

How I made my card:

1. I took my collection of Wood stamp from Hero Arts and started to stamped the image one in a white paper and embossed it with black EP, second one I stamped on a black paper and embossed it with white EP
2. Using grey distress ink I gave some clouds and sponged the street under the car too.
3. I cut the image in the middle and glued the half white and half black together :) I also gave foam tape for the main image and adhere it at the white cardstock.
4. I have already stamped the Manuscript Background on my white cardstock and I can called my card finish :)

I hope I can inspired you to join the Black and White Manly card challenge this time :)  just klick HERE to join us :)

  24. Hi Monika, I am so pleased you are our guest for April at Cardz 4 Guyz. Your first Guest card is wonderful, I do like this technique of the black and white. I'm sure you will enjoy the next month, have fun. Caz DT @ Cardz 4 Guyz.

  25. Super manly card, Monika.

    Sorry for not visiting earlier.

    As far as the rose goes, I bought it yet I have to say I do know how to make it. When I did make it myself, I realized that using a needle and thread were much easier than using glue as the ribbon is so soft and slippery.

    So basically, I started off like a paper rose, folding the initial bit and using a needle and thread as I shape it further, folding it gradually and slowly.

    Hope that helps, dear Monika.

    Lovely to see you,


  26. I've never thought of stamping an image on different colored paper and assemble it together, it's so cool, love the idea, must borrow it at some point! Look at the fabulous cloudy sky! And love the script background as well. One of my favorite manly cards of yours....

  27. Fabulous masculine card Monika, gorgeous design and stamping! Congrats on your GDT spot!

  28. I love your half and half technique with your stamped image! Wonderful card, Monika!

  29. Congrats on your GD spot, Monika! Great masculine card and love the black and white halves!

  30. I LOVE this stamp and what you did with it is amazing my friend. And there are your signature clouds... the vintage look is complete with your color scheme!! Excellent card... I know your birthday is coming up.. Card is on the way!!

  31. A stunning masculine design. Loving the positive and negative effect on the vintage car.
    Hugs Desíre {Doing Life}

  32. Wauw! This card is amazing!! Thank you for joining our challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

  33. Das ist ja eine tolle Idee, das Auto einfach durchzuschneiden und so in weiß/schwarz zu halten!!!
    LG Flo
