This last week we were challenged to make a card with a manly feel to it.  I am often told that making cards for the men in our lives can be a bit difficult.  We seem to gravitate to pretty ribbons, lace, and other things. When it comes time to make something more masculine we struggle.  Over the years I have found that we don’t need to change too much on a project to make it masculine.  Guys like bright colors, earthy tones, flowers, animals, and much more.  Often the only hurdle to overcome when stamping a card for a guy is the hurdle in our mind and not whether to use the stamp set with the chicken or not.  Play around, have fun, and remember when you are making a card you are giving more than just paper.  You are sharing your friendship, support, and talents.

Michele shared with us her challenge card.  She used some of the Classic Garage DSP and made a quick card that definitely has a manly feel.  Thanks Michele!
