Challenge #3 – Masculine Card

23 Oct

Hello, and welcome to our third Young Crafters Unite challenge! We hope you will be able to join us in this challenge =) Before we get to the challenge, we wanted to let you all know that we’re planning to do a blog hop with the same theme as this challenge. The blog hop will start on November 4th, and run throughout that weekend. Since the theme for the blog hop is the same as for the challenge, you will be allowed to enter your blog hop card into the challenge as well. Sign-ups will begin this Friday on Friday the 28th of October at 12:01 am and space will be limited, so make sure to pop over here then to sign up! Now, let’s announce this months challenge!

This time, we want you to make a masculine card! There’s so much you can do when making a masculine card. You can use maculine colors, masculine images, masculine patterned papers and whatever else you can think of =)
