Masculine cards!

DSC_0007
Happy Friday!! Woah, this week went by quickly! I have seen lots of requests for masculine cards. This definitely isn't my forte! It is hard to do! In this card I kept the color scheme super simple and used the more "boyish" cake plate from Bake Me A Cake. Also, everyone loves cupcakes so they are gender neutral in my world. Hehe! The typewriter font in the alpha stickers is definitely manly, and then instead of tying a bow in the twine, I did a knot and put it on the back of the card. I would definitely give this to the different guys in my life!

Here is another man-card. Haha! Once again, my idea of masculine is a simple card with few colors. Ha! This little scallop sticker from Studio Calico works really well, and the horseshoe from Sophie's Sentiments works well for guys, too!

Thanks for this masculine challenge! I will definitely keep trying to make more masculine cards with Lawn Fawn sets! Also, a lot of men love the Critters. They are a huge hit in my family because all of the men around here are animal lovers, so that is something to keep in mind, too!

Have a wonderful weekend!!! I am teaching at Paper Tales this Saturday! Here is some info:
