A Card For Him

Hi Friends(that sounds sounds better then guys lol),

Hope your weekend was a good one and you had time to find a few hours to be creative and if you live in my part of the world to keep warm lol!

I really find it hard to make a Male's card, so hard that when It's my Brother's Birthdays I go and buy them a store brought card(I know SHAMEFUL lol)so I thought I'll set myself a challenge over the weekend to sit down and make a Birthday card for a man and not let my mind wonder to my pretty floral stamp sets, glitter and Pink card stock lol!

So this is the card I came up with

and here's a pic of inside of the card

All products Used By Stampin' Up!
~Seaside Stamp Set
~Chocolate Chip and Naturals Ivory Card Stock
~Chocolate Chip Ink
~Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon
~Hemp Twine
~Antique Brass Brads
~Square and Oval Punches

I was pretty happy how my card turned out and I loved using Naturals Ivory card stock and I'll have to remember to use it more lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see ya later on in the week, till then, Take Care


  1. Very nice card Kylie-LOVE that ribbon treatment!- I'd like to CASE that one day if thats ok?!!

  2. Great card, I think we all struggle with male cards as we all love the emblishments!

  3. Wow! That is a great card, love it! Very tricky to come up with male cards huh? I think you have some a great job to stay away from all things floral and sparkly :)

  4. Lovely! Beautiful work and not at all "girly".

  5. Absolutely PERFECT for a male card Kylie! You've done well!

    I must try my hand at a male card of of these days!


  6. Wow! This one turned out great! It was really hard for me too to make a manly card! We are so focused on cutsie things and when it comes to a masculine card .....that is sure a challenge!! But yours turned out great!! I really like the color you picked out!! 2 thumbs up chic!


  7. I must admit to thinking guys just wouldn't appreciate a hand made card - but the one I did for my BIL has been put on display in pride of place!! Guess I was wrong! Will be buying less for guys now!
    Love this one - a fabulous male card!

  8. Great card Kylie! I'm always looking for ideas for male cards...thanks!
