Masculine Birthday Card

If I had to pick the hardest thing for me to craft, it would definitely be masculine cards.  I like flowers.  I like pink.  I like glitter.  I don’t like typical “guy” themes.  It’s just not me.  Not that I’m “girly girly.”  I’m SO not.  I just like flowers and pink things.  Below is a card I made for my brother.  Not even a hint of glitter! (Well, maybe there is a hint of it . . .)  What do you think?


I already sent the card off so I don’t have exact measurements.  On the left, I used a line of small brads to bring out a little glimmer.  On the whisper white card stock, I sponged a little Soft Sky on the top and Marina Mist on the top.  The Marina Mist card stock is resting on silver foil (gotta love the foil).  Stamp set is called  Open Seas — it’s a great stamp set for masculine cards.

Happy Birthday, dear sweet brother!!  Hope it’s an amazing year for you!!  XOXO
