Ripped Jeans: Male Themed Creation

Presenting to you my entry for challenge number 109: This is a Man's World, being hosted by Crafty Card Makers and More.
I wanted to make this card a little different from all the masculine cards I've seen so far. Since this was meant to be a male themed creation, I wanted it to have a rugged, rough, yet youthful look and feel. And so took my inspiration from the below "Ripped Jeans" image found online:

This is what I put together:

Worked with kraft card and blue cardstock. The blue base was first inked to appear as denim and then ripped to create the ripped jeans effect and inked further. Below is a close up, showing all the details =D [very happy with the effect]
The sentiment is embossed; black and copper.
The inside is simple.
And as you can see capturing the colors was a task in itself. =)
Happy crafting!


  1. Wow Saba, this is really clever and very inventive!

  2. I love how you've made the card look so much like denim, it's really effective. The greeting is a perfect match too (it reminds me of the label you get at the back of jeans). A really great masculine card.

    Thanks for sharing with us at CCM&M


    1. Thank you, I did try and make it seem like the label in the back... tried to achieve that with the copper embossing.
