Tackling Masculine...

...cards!

It's the start of the peak-masculine card season for me. So cue total mental blocks and me just sat staring at various shades of cardstock on my desk! I don't know why I freak out so much about having to make 'guy cards', I mean with 3 brothers I should really be used to making them by now LOL!

My saviour has to be PTI's Starprints for guy cards - not too girly but fun at the same time! Pair this with some manly colours and a CAS style with some rough, manly distressed edges and I'm ready to deliver the goods ;D

Card Recipe
(All PTI Supplies)
Stamps: Star Prints/Daily Designs Sentiments
Ink: Enchanted Evening/Dark Chocolate
Cardstock: Enchanted Evening/Kraft
Accessories: Dark Chocolate Twill Ribbon
/3D foam pads

Oh well I couldn't resist a bit of ribbon! But hey, at least it's twill and not super silky satin LOL!

I hope it's not just me who freaks out about guy cards, I always wonder if it's worth the effort...I have to confess that I often think about just buying a card for them *GASP*! Well this is one brother down, 2 more to go (and don't even get me started on the other guys in our family ;D)
