Dang, making cards for the male gender is kind of difficult, but I welcomed the challenge when a buddy asked me to make one.
Having been inspired by the latest Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday to customize patterned paper, I gold embossed a series of arrow points, then applied the same treatment to the large sentiment and adhered both to a card base. The sentiment panel was mounted on foam. I finished the card with four rows of burlap string.
Not only masculine cards being a challenge, so is trying to photograph the shine from embossing powder! I thought the earth tone colors, gold, burlap and the not too girly script font were a good match for guys.
