Hi Friends, I find cards for men hard to make. Here is one I made for my husband for Father’s Day:
I just got the stamp set from Local King Rubber Stamps at the stamp show because I knew it would be great for quick guy cards. Watch the video to see how I made it:
Tips for masculine cards:
- Keep a clean simple design.
- Take color cues from nature (ocean blue, bark brown, moss green etc.)
- Use natural textures like this jute rope.
- Don’t stress about it, I know a card doesn’t feel done until it has lace, buttons and ribbon but think about who you are making the card for. Some guys will appreciate lots of textures and details but most are happy with a clean and simple look.
I hope this did not sound sexist, i know many ladies that love a clean and simple card with earth tones and I know many men love the bling. I just want to give you an easy option for a quick non-frilly card. Have a great day and til next time happy crafting!
