Masculine Birthday Cards

So I decided to make a birthday card for my Dad. I tend not to make masculine cards, so this was a bit of a challenge.

My first try:

It started off with good intentions - browns and blues, but somehow pearls and shimmer spritz and ribbon jumped onto the card. It's cute, but not my favourite, and not exactly masculine either.

My second try:

It looked better in my head, but it'll do.


  1. I can just imagine how hard it would be to resist the urge to use all the beautiful ribbons, beads and sequins to make a masculine card.
    I think they are both fantastic! :)

  2. I like them both equally. I can imagine it was hard to avoid using the pretties!!
