Hi there! Chrissie here today!
I have a few simple, but classic cards that are perfect for anyone – I think they even have a bit of a male twist to them! I struggle with sparkly foil and masculine cards. But when I use Brutus Monroe toner sheets, I feel like the style is masculine enough to work, even with some sparkle!

Classic Cards for Men with Brutus Monroe Toner Sheets
To create these cards, I simply used my Brutus Monroe toner sheets with a laminator. It’s so incredibly easy!
I cut the toner sheets down to fit on my card, then cut some foil to place on the sheets. I placed the foil on top on the toner sheet (silver side down) and placed it into a carrier sheet. I ran it through my laminator and that’s it!
But… I kept that negative piece of foil and put it on some Toner sheets and ran it through the laminator again. Then, I added a second piece of foil on top of that! I love to stretch my stash as much as I can and I think using the negative foil is a great way to do that!
I have two cards that have a 100% solid foil background and two cards that are partially foiled (only where there was toner on the Toner Sheets. So much fun, right?!?!?
After that, I knew I only wanted to add a sentiment. I had colored in some images, but it just felt like too much for a masculine card. I wanted the foil to be the star of the show, so I die cut some banners and stamped sentiments on them. I adhered everything with 3D foam squares.
That’s it! Pretty simple and I really love how all of these turned out!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you use this technique when you make masculine (or ANY) cards! Make sure to tag us on social media so we can see what you make and use the hashtags #thermoweb and #decofoil.
Have an amazing day!
