Hi friends, it’s not very often that I have something that I term a masculine card to share — today I do. In fact, this is a simple go to card that I can do at any time just to say thanks. I chose a new stamp by Quietfire Design that has a calligraphy ‘Thanks’, but the ‘t’ is hollowed out, hence the name Fill ‘Er Up ‘T‘ . I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to fill it with some texture and also use the texture as a background so I picked a small pattern in Spellbinders So Trendy embossing folder – Side B. I cut out the hollow part of the ‘t’ but it would have been just as easy to cut it out and simply pop it on top.
Here’s how I made it – step by step:
I started out with a 4-7/8″ x 6″. Using a Krylon pen, I edged a panel cut to 4-1/4″ x 5-3/8″ and embossed a panel using So Trendy Embossing Folder cut to just under the same size. I added the top part of Spellbinders 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy to the top of the panel before adhering with a double layer of foam tape. Next I added a die cut layer using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Thirty Four – adhered with foam tape and finished with my sentiment stamped on a die cut layer using Spellbinders Labels Thirty Four, rimmed with Gold Krylon Pen, adhered with foam tape.

You can never have too many of them! Super Masculine Card! :)
I can see this as a masculine card, very clean and simple.
This is a great card! The texture works great and it does make a lovely masculine card.

So beautiful!! The gold is a perfect touch!! Oh that bow!!! ?
Great card for a guy Becca. Very pretty.
Hi Becca. I think this card is great and just right for the men. I love the idea of putting your own design in the T. Take care.

very different from your usual style Becca, but it´s still a very lovely card and is perfect for these men, who don´t like the girly look he he he, and ofcause wealso need to make cards for them as well, ad you sure did an awesome job on this one here. I love the beautiful colors in it.
I like this very much and I love the bow of course!!
A really lovely card Becca, a very good stamp that you have really personalised,

Gorgeous card, love the way the background shows through the sentiment.
Good morning Becca,
I really like this card and sentiment. I’d fill the T with Zentangle, it would look fabulous, and leave the ribbon off for the men in my life – they would not appreciate it – but I’d use either string or straw! I’m off now to try my version!! xx
This is so lovely, love the stamp, you can make this look so different every time.
I would love if you could put on your blog where we can buy these stamps from and all the words/verses you post, they are always so different and perfect.
Love & Hugs

Another beautiful card! Yellow/gold is not my go-to color but your gorgeous card my well make me a little braver… Thank you for sharing!!
Don’t do much stamping but I’m being tempted to get this one. It’s fab. As is the card!
great card – I would send that to any gender.
Have been really interested in all the storage for dies as it is a problem! As you so rightly say easy accessibility is the main thing while protecting the dies. As I live in the UK will not get involved in the Competition. Will search for a similar solution here – if such a thing exists. Folders become much too heavy!
Today’s card is so different for you but I really like it and the gold is such a nice change. I use cream ribbon but never gold – you got me thinking!
Thanks so much,
Becca, I learn so much from you. With you sharing your craft storage, it makes it so much easier to focus on organizing my craft room.
As always, you are so inspiring, thank you.
Thank you for introducing me to Quietfire Design. They have several sayings that I like! I used one on my grandmothers birthday card this year. Quite an accomplishment to find a sentiment I think she will like.
I love Quietfire Design’s stamps! They are so pretty! Love the idea of using texture to Fill ‘er up! TFS!
