Masculine Ideas

With Father's Day rapidly approaching,
I thought I'd share some masculine creations.

Masculine cards are difficult for many crafters, including myself. 
Why is that?

Maybe it's the lack of masculine stamp sets out there, or
maybe lack of inspiration. I dunno.

One thing that you can do is focus on something that is a part of their life.  If you don't have stamps to match...get creative! Make something with punches...or ribbon! ;-)

Yes, I just said "ribbon" for a guy card. lol
Here are two samples.
First, the serious one:
...and now the "Dilbert" type version. ;-)

Well, what do you think?

The Small Print (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Linen BG
Cardstock: Naturals Ivory
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Lg. Chocolate satin ribbon (retired)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. Really cute. I think I will have to CASE that one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is so cute! It was a jaw-dropper for me! Sometimes when I come on your blog I hold my breath because I know it's going to be something sensational - I shouldn't do that because I couldn't take in any more breath! Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  3. This amazing! So cute and creative-- and I can always use extra inspiration for guy-cards. ;)
