Cards for men

I've been struggling with making cards for our deployed troops to send home to male friends and family.  We decided to post the question on Facebook and got interesting results.  Here's some cards I made this week after this discussion.
I printed this digi image from Stamper's Best onto glossy photo paper, then cut each car out with an oval Spellbinders die.  I also cut black glossy cardstock with one size larger oval die.  I chose black and white for the entire card, using masculine prints from Making Memories.  The sentiments are all stickers.

This card was made with a wider piece of paper, so I placed the image fully on the patterned paper.  These letters were cut from glossy black cardstock with Sizzlet alphabet dies.  I put the scrap of cardstock through my Xyron before cutting letters.



  1. Great variety of "guy" sentiments, Velda. I like every single card!

  2. Our grandson is entering boot camp the end of August and this will be a perfect card for his graduation! Thanks for the idea.
