Need a guy card idea?

Here's one I designed in about a minute! I love when that happens. Totally makes up for those 5 hour designs!



I stamped the fish with silver pigment ink and then the sentiment right on top with black. You could emboss the sentiment for added dimension. All layers are flat...because let's face it...the guys would never say "oh...I love how you popped that up with foam tape!"
Well...some guys might. Like my hubby...but only because I force him to look at all my creations as I describe every little detail. Poor guy! Sometimes I have to sneak up and catch him off guard...cause if he thinks I'm comin'...

Fish won't work for you? Make it a boat or football -- or whatever your man is into. You don't even need the twine. Change the color scheme. This quick design can be used for anything! Have fun :)

Recipe:
Stamps - A Muse Salmon and Classic Numbers *retired*
Ink - Colorbox Pigment Silver and Black
Paper - A Muse Vintage Blue cardstock; Bazzill Kraft and Black cardstock
Mics. - Twine

I just loved your comment about guys not appreciating how we pop up layers. DH is trained but you're right, it takes a lot of work to train them that way! Good giggle!

Great masculine card! And yes, I'm TOTALLY into "those" types of stamps!!! LOL! And I kind of already knew you were too judging by how many of them Patty owns! LOL! SOMEONE had to enable her after all... and you have that look about you! LOL!
