Photoplay Grease Monkey Masculine Cards

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a couple of quick and easy Photoplay Grease Monkey Masculine Cards to share with you.  These are great for graduation, birthdays, and other occasions when you need a card for the guys in your life.

Ticket to Ride

Ticket to Ride Masculine Card with Photoplay Grease Monkey by Kathy Clement

I love it when a card can be used for lots of different purposes.  This 5″ x 7″ top fold card is great for the young man who just passed his driver’s test.  It’s also a fun graduation or birthday card .  You could even use this card as a “milestone” birthday card, thanks to the speed limit sign on the background paper.

The  “key”  (see what I did there?) is to add foam tape between layers to make the simple elements pop off off the page.  Then tie a key on with some bakers twine, thrown in a few gears, and you’re nearly done.  Add a pop of color with the ticket from the ephemera pack.  Simple, but effective!

Here’s a peek inside.

Happy Birthday Handsome Slimline Shaker Card

This card is almost too easy to make.  The trick is using the Photoplay #9 Slimline Dies to create a shaker window.  Here’s how I did it:

  • Cut silver foil paper using the next to largest die . Use some post it tape or mint tape to hold the die in place.
  • Now, use a ruler and a craft knife to cut along the scored lined inside the silver panel.  If you place the paper on a glass cutting mat, the craft knife will glide along the surface and create a nice, clean cut.
  • Next, line the back side of the frame with clear cardstock.
  • Then add 3 layers of foam tape to the back of the frame.
  • Place a shaker mix and small metal gears over the patterned paper layer, then press the frame in place.
  • Now place dimensionals on the back of the banner sticker and adhere to the card.
  • Finally, place foam tape on the back of the “Happy Birthday” sticker and you’re done!

Here’s a peek inside.  Stamp a sentiment on a blank piece of cardstock so you can write a personal note.

Then create a little gift card wallet to tuck inside the pocket. Boom!  You’re done!

I love it when a sharp looking card only takes about 30 minutes to make.  How about you?

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    My son recently purchased a new motorcycle…can’t believe how quiet it is! I’m remembering the roar of bikes from years gone by. I decided to purchased a select couple of designer sheets from this collection…couldn’t imagine using all the designs in the full collection. That said, I see you’ve done a nice job of pulling this project together. I really like the bakers twine on this one, and that key does work! LOVE the gears!! I found some motorcycle charms to use on my cards. Well done, Kathy!

    You make these masculine card layouts look great and seem like I could accomplish something similar! Appreciate your ideas and layouts; I am such a fan of slimline and shaker cards. The combo really is appealing and I know would be a hit, especially with those little gears in the shaker mix. I am on the hunt now to find similar shaker embellishments!

    Marty is a lover of the Ford Mustang, he has a GT, so that one would be perfect for him. It’s tough sometimes to come up with masculine cards. I have papers with gears and stuff, just have to remember where I put them. 😉 Shaker card is great too Kathy, the banner on the front… love it. Have a great Tuesday.
