Celebrate a Man in Your Life

Ever have trouble making cards for the man in your life? Me too!! It's so hard to keep myself from adding bows and buttons...sugar and spice and everything nice! How do we stick to "snips and snails and puppy dog tails"...??

Stampin' Up! has made our job a little bit easier with the "To the Nines" specialty designer series paper. It is a cover-weight (extra think), textured card stock in masculine colors and patterns. The mod pattern on today's card comes from that set of DSP. Here's a peek at the whole set:

I was inspired to make this card because this week's Late Night Stampers Challenge is to make a masculine card. Want to join in the fun, too? Be sure to join our group!

Helpful Hint: The key to guy-approved cards is keeping them clean and simple with nice lines and masculine colors and finishes. Instead of embellishing with ribbon, try hardware (like the jumbo eyelets-108432)!
