Masculine Birthday Card Swap

Hi Everybody!

I am participating in a Masculine Birthday Card swap over at Scraps of Color.  The challenge was not to use any bling on the cards.  I went through 3 different layouts before I decided to mass produce this card.  This is the one that I proud to share with others.

I used the French Prep paper pad from Colorbok because of the darker tones.  Actually Hubs chose this pack out of the three that I had originally thought would be great for a masculine card.  I used the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge to create the top note tag.  I decorated the inside of the cards in three different ways because the paper pack only comes with two sheet of each design. So I was a little limited in my quantities.  Though I like all three of them, I think this first one is my favorite.

This one is Hubby's favorite inside.

This was the most challenging card I have ever made.  Masculine cards are so difficult for me but I was so glad that I took this challenge and kept at it until a was created that I liked enough to share.

Well this is all for today's project.  I think I should keep working on masculine cards.  Maybe I will create one manly card a week until I make them in my sleep.  We'll see.

Thank you all for stopping by today.  I always enjoy spending some time with you.  I will see you all next time.
