My card today is male themed – I shy away from making cards for blokes, I need my flowers lol.  But I had such fun with this one, I love a challenge!  I think for me, the secret to blokey cards seeing as I can’t overload on the flowers is to use layers to add interest, which I did with this card.  I started off by stamping the stitched border from the In Stitches stamp set around the bottom layer of paper, then added the wire effect stamp from the Lovely Lavender stamp set.  I then layered up a banner with a strip of measuring tape ribbon wrapped around.  I hit up the stitching stamp again on this layer.  I thn stamped the sentiment from the new For the Men stamp set, and finished off with some stars die cut from the Pierced Stars die set.  A few screw brads and a little fob watch and job done.

  20. Well what hubby wouldn't utterly LOVE to be given this gorgeous card! Cards for our fellas can be such a challenge, but you make this look elegant and effortless and yet totally masculine all at the same time! Love EVERYTHING about it and that chicken wire randomly stamped is such a cool feature. Love it! Hugs, Wends xoxo
