Layers Create Interesting Male Birthday Card

Are you ever stumped making a card for a man?  It can be hard to switch gears if you're used to ribbons, bows, and sparkle!
For "man cards" you need to think texture.  Ribbons are good if you choose twill or the 1/2" Stitched Poly like in the picture.  Other good choices are hemp twine and Stampin' Up!s new denim ribbon. 

Stampin' dimensionals are also good.  The party hat sticks up on dimensionals making it a 3-d focal point.
Like the newsprint strip?  Don't be afraid to alter your supplies!  I simply inked the brayer with Island Indigo and rolled over the First Edition specialty designer series paper.

Hope this gets you started thinking of ways to make some masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
