Inspired by Nature Masculine Birthday Card

Handmade Masculine Card

For some reason cards for guys tend to be the hardest cards for stampers to make (myself included).  They just don’t come as easily as the cards with flowers and frills and bling.  This is the “guy” card we made in the Birthday Card Class yesterday at the Mason-Dixon library.  As with many “masculine” cards, this really could be used for a guy or a girl. Girls wouldn’t mind getting this, so why do guys mind getting flowers??

Inspired by Nature & Teeny Tiny Wishes

To make this card we used the Inspired by Nature and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, the Finial Press embossing folder, 1 3/8″ Circle punch, Modern Label punch, Vintage Brads and Night of Navy grosgrain ribbon.  The colors are Whisper White, Ballet Blue, Night of Navy and Handsome Hunter.

The neat thing about this card is the fact that you can open it up and still see the birthday greetings at the bottom!  It’s neat to have a little something decorative there and it can also be nice if you don’t want to write a long message!

  1. I Love this stamp set! My favorite is the cattails on the tall reeds that I’ve seen before.

  2. I enjoyed making this card (and am very happy to see more card classes to come). I love the added texture the embossed paper lends to the card. Thanks for thinking this one up, Becky! 🙂

  3. Becky, this is awesome! I love everything about it!! One of my customers would say that teh ribbon makes it NOT a man card, but I always tell her that the ribbon is a KNOT! And men like knots. LOL

  4. This is a beautiful card, for a guy or a gal. I like the fold design that keeps the bottom greeting in view when it’s open. We can depend on you for new and creative ideas! Thanks, Becky.

  5. Great guy card. Beautifully done!

  6. Oh, I really like this!! Great masking on the moon, love the blues and texture with embossing! tfs

  7. Such a lovely card. I agree, the cattails do so much to any card design. I would like to have that stamp!! The blues look like evening.
