I love Flower Stamps & Punches, the color Pink, and Ribbon (my husband says a card with ribbon isn’t manly)! Well because I have all of these traits, I find it really hard to come up with a good Man Card when I need one! I have found that the more simple the card is, the more manly it is and I have found a “ribbon” that isn’t manly – Linen Thread!!!! I am in love with Linen Thread and it seems to last forever. I think I finally used up my first package of it…..like over 6 months later! That is amazing! So here are a few samples I have come up with for all of my upcoming man birthdays and events!
You can’t get much more manly that a Beer Mug, right? This card is created with a different punches – Corner Rounder, X-Large Oval, Large Oval, 3/4″ Circle Punch, 1-3/8″ Circle Punch, and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I used Sponge Daubers to add a So Saffron color to the “beer foam.”
This is another perfect card for the men in my family because they are farmers and hunters so the whole wood look goes very well! I used a piece of Chocolate Chip Core’dinations Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder! I then rubbed the Sanding Block over the top to reveal that lighter cardstock layer that is underneath. Added a little bit of Linen Thread and a punched greeting!
Another fabulous and simple Man Card. I added a little texture for the background with the Stripes Embossing Folder! And then I made the little tie with some of the new Chevron Ribbon in Marina Mist! I know I know….my husband said no ribbon but this is still manly since it is a bow tie!
I hope you enjoyed these Man Cards and now I can go back to my Flowers and Pinks!!!
