Tailored Tag Mosaic Masculine Card Video

Hello, Crafters.

I wish you all a very happy and blessed Easter.

Today's video shows how I used the same design of mosaic pattern, that I used for the wedding card I shared with you on Friday, to create a masculine birthday card.

Although I'm happy with the wedding card, and the two subsequent baby cards I made
(see photographs), I'm most pleased with the masculine background. 

As I used a fairly plain Designer Series Paper (DSP), the beauty of the mosaic design shines through. 

I used the Wood Textures 6" x 6" DSP Stack and chose three designs that were easy to label light, medium, and dark.

At one stage in the video I went wrong with the colour layout, but looking at the card now, it doesn't look like a mistake! 

It was also a mistake to used Night of Navy Cardstock (CS) as my base for the mosaic, as my cheat lines didn't show up! LOL!

As all the designs I chose from the Wood Textures DSP have a pink hue to them, I chose Fresh Fig as my card base. 

This, together with the stamped images in Fresh Fig, give my card a nice light airy feel about it. 

In fact, I think the DSP is very tactile - everytime I look at it I want to stroke it, it looks so soft and smooth! LOL!

I hope you enjoy today, and that you don't eat too many Easter Eggs! Happy Easter.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. Just love this card ... ALL of them! Today's card is just great as a Masculine card of any sort. Really love the woodgrain DSP for this one too! Beautiful! Thanks so much for an awesome video once again, Jan and Happy Easter to you both & family also!

    1. Hi, Geraldine. Yes, I thought the Wood Textures Mosaic blew the other three designs right out of the water! Everytime I look at it I want to stroke it; it looks so soft! Happy Eater to yo and yours, too. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  2. Hi Jan, I really love the masculine card and the baby card using these shape, I cannot tell you why I do not like it with the speciality DSP for the wedding. Its a great design though thanks. :O)

    1. Hi, Lorraine. I'm with you on the wedding card! I loved it when I'd firsat made it, then the baby cards were my favourites but now it's the masculine card! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
