The Man

The dreaded "Man Card".  Card for guys can be hard for some. They are for me. Theirs this thing, no bows, no ribbons, no bling, no no no. There what is there left to design with?

Most of my guy cards end up with a tree on it. Well it is high time to change it up. So what do I use... wood grain designer series paper! ha how ironic!

This is the super easiest, super fastest guy card ever. But I had some help. Stampin Up has created a new Paper Stack called Adventure Bound and it is simply amazing for all guy cards.

Tell you what if you have lots of guys in your family that you send cards too, this is the paper stack to get. AND get a few of them to have on hand for years to come. There are trees, wood, sweater pattern, grass, rocks, bricks, water and more. It is awesome! 

It makes for great guy cards in just using the paper and a greeting as in my card above. The strip across the front is just the paper flipped and glued. Two sided all guy all great paper.

Now lets take embellishments. I know I said no ribbon, no bows.... but how about twine or linen thread? Our Bakers Twine comes in lots of colors, and the linen thread goes with with guys card. We also carry burlap ribbon too. So this "guy" looking trim will work great, just don't tie it in a bow! ha
