So where would the craft world be without it's favourite cliche - it's so hard to make cards for men!! No it's not, it really isn't. Men are quite simple creatures (at least that's what women are always telling us!!) and as such we don't really care what's on the front of a card, especially if we know someone has taken time making it for us. I love flowers, teddy bears, cute images (my wife is probably rolling her eyes reading this!) and a whole lot of other stuff too. I don't like most sports, I don't play cards or darts, I don't like fast or fancy cars, yachts or pints of ale and I have never played golf in my life! So in the future girls, just give your fella a nice card from your ready made stash and see what he says, I bet he loves it.
For this weeks card over at I ♥ ProMarkers the theme is "Anything Goes" and as my darling wife wanted a card making for her nephew I thought I'd give a man's card a go as I don't often get the chance to make a masculine card very often. I used some really old papers (I think they were a Papermania collection, they are all about ball sports which is ironic as I hate most ball games!!) for the background, some Tim Holtz pen nibs, a Sizzix alphabet (cut out twice to create a shadow) and a Kenny K image (called Ryder Cole) which is still relatively new to his collection.
I have been very creative this week and have also made another christmas card which I will be adding later, so hope you enjoy,
