“You’re the Man” Happy Birthday Card for Cards in Envy


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!

  1. Fabulous card and loving those papers. TFS

  2. Great masculine card!

  3. Love your masculine birthday card using soft neutral colours. I’m with you about masculine cards being difficult not to add all the fun “girly” embellishments.
