Fella Card Challenge

The challenge at SSDS this week was to produce a "guy card" (cue the horror movie music).  I know, I know AGGGGGHHHHHH!
So making a card for a guy has been THE topic of discussion with many of my crafty friends lately.  We are all looking for inspiration on how to make a card that doesn't seem boring (meaning no flowers, no sparkly blingy stuff and no fun ribbon).

I was talking to a friend and she mentioned that she came across a blog that talked about taking your typical ingredients- flowers, ribbon, bling- and trading them for "guy ingredients" flowers=matte buttons, ribbon=twine/cotton fiber, bling=solid colored brads.  If you know what blog it is, could you leave me a comment and I'll post it for everyone?!?  I found this tip sheet to share with everyone for now. :)
Hopefully you have a wonderful weather weekend and you'll even get a chance to squeak in some time to create a masculine card for the SSDS challenge.  The sponsor this week is Fresh Brewed Designs, so enter your creation so you can win!!!

Edit- I added this to the following challenges
Stamping for the Weekend- Masculine
Cute Card Thursday- Someone Special
Cards for Men- Outdoors
Colour Create-  Khaki, aqua, brown, cream (I got seriously lucky on this one!)


  1. Why are masculine cards such a challenge?? Cute card with a great verse.
