Masculine birthday card...

I made this card recently for a brother-in-law. I first found some playing card images online, sized them to fit on my card and then printed them out on cardstock. They were then easy enough to just fussy cut.

When figuring out what cards to use, I decided I should at least give him two pairs--maybe he could win the hand with them!

I had a pack of pre-made paper frames, so I decided to use one of those, and then I printed out my sentiments (front and inside) on my computer. I added the enamel dots for a bit of dimension.

Just a simple card interior, with room to write a personal message.

Men's cards are so difficult for me to make!! I know a lot of other cardmakers struggle with them, too. I've got quite a few male birthdays coming up soon, so I've got to find a few more ideas.

Most of the men in my life do not golf. I wish they did, because there are some cute golf-themed card ideas out there.

Do you have a favorite idea for a masculine card? Do share!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great idea for masculine card. I think you could also just scan and print some regular playing cards too. Love the sentiment. You come up with some great ones. One of my go to themes for men is maps or oceans with sailboats.

Cheryl, that is a really great creation for anyone who plays cards and might be moving around a little slower for some reason. Great sentiments!
