A Masculine Hello

Masculine cards have always been a bit of
a challenge for me and from what I've
been hearing, I'm not the only one that struggles 
when it comes to making cards for the men in our lives.
I've decided to challenge myself to make more 
masculine cards and to share them here
with you in hopes that they inspire you
to make more cards for the man in your life.

The card I have for you today could be for any occasion.
It could easily be a birthday, anniversary or a Father's Day card
just by changing up the greeting.  
It could even be a Valentine's card for your sweetie
just by adding a little red heart or two
with a comment about how 'he's your anchor' -
I know a little corny but still cute.

  1. Perfect masculine card, Susan! I look forward to seeing what you create for masculine cards. I think they are the hardest for a lot of us. :)

    1. Thank you Kristie! They have always been a struggle for a lot of us. I'm hoping that the more I make them, the easier it gets - fingers crossed.
