It’s hard. Making a card for a guy.  A card that’s not frilly.  Usually no flowers, no pretty ribbons.  It’s hard.   But that’s our card challenge this time for Cards in Envy.  Make a card that depicts “You’re the Man” or more specifically–a manly, masculine card.  So here’s mine.  I kept it simple.  Tried not to over think it and used some neutral “manly” looking papers.

My list of supplies for this card:

  • Kraft 8 1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock
  • Kaisercraft 6 1/2″ Paper Pad–“Art of Life”
  • Circle Punch
  • Colorbox Graphic 45 Decades Ink–Dark Cashmere (to ink the edges of the paper layers)
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (for the sentiment)
  • Misti Stamp Tool
  • Stampin’ Up! Acrylic Stamp–“Endless Birthday Wishes”
  • Foam Tape (to raise the sentiment layer slightly)
  • Button String–Natural

Okay, so it was pretty easy after all with the right supplies.  Thinking about it was the hardest. Ha, ha.

Get your card crafting on and make a manly card!  We’d love to see it over on Cards in Envy for this challenge.

Happy Crafting!
