Some Men's Cards!

With Fathers Day coming up I thought I would post some of the 'dreaded' mens cards I have been making recently, this one was from the kids to my wonderful father in law on his recent birthday. I am going to enter this card into the Cupcake Craft Challenge where the theme is One for the Boys!  Now I have two brand new baby nephews I am definately going to have to get used to making more male cards!

I made this card for my friend to give to her lovely dad on his birthday. She is a scrapbooker and likes nothing more than tearing and distressing papers so I tried to make this card in her style and distressed almost every edge of paper I could find! I am going to enter this into the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge this week where the theme is red, white and blue. The digi stamp and papers are from Pink Petticoat.

Here is a closer look at my distressing as it doesn't show up very much in the above photograph.I usually like nice clean lines so this one was difficult for me, I think I managed to make my distressing look a bit too neat!

This is a card that I made for one of our friends, I was running out of ideas and time with this one and am not so pleased with it!

All of the above cards have been made with paper and sentiment from this kit from Pink Petticoat, it really has saved my life so many times when I have had to make a card for a man.

Finally I made this card for another of my friends to give to her lovely dad on his special day, the colour requriements were blues and greens and she picked out the paper, the 65 was cut on my cricut and layered so it sticks out a bit and the label was printed from the computer.

I am now off to make yet more male cards, fathers day, hubby's birthday and some other male birthdays, I can't wait to get the flowers and bling out again!

Have a great week!

Hi Tracey! i am just loving all of your masculine cards!!! they are so hard to create for aren't they? i have been informed by my Dad that he no longer likes "fat cards" as he calls them. He is referring to 3D or decoupage!!! he will be lucky to get a handmade card this year!!!. Congratulations on the new additions darl. Hugs Clare xxx
