My Dad's birthday is on Sunday, so this is for him. I really struggle in trying to make masculine cards. If I can't put a Bella or sparkles on it then I am at a complete loss. I found a few ideas for cowboy themed cards in a recent issue of Paper Crafts and used one of them for inspiration. I used scraps of Cloud 9 Design paper from the LO I did of my nephew Landon. The "make a wish" stamp is a Michael's $1 stamp. I REALLY wanted to add some stickles to the chipboard star but I resisted. I think I should sign his card now and seal it in the envelope as I may not be able to resist adding some sparkles before Sunday!


  1. What a great Man Card. I love the simple designs like this for a man, and yet I'm like you - I wanna keep adding bling to them. Stay strong!! Very cool card - your dad will love it.

  2. You are so funny! I also have a problem with BLING... But what is that around the star? Are those rain dots? I love them because they simple and they look great! He will love it!

  3. What an awesome masculine card! You're my hero right now. I just can't do them. I struggle so much! I really love the brads you put around the star! They add sooooo much, but don't look like bling! Awesome work!
