A quick reminder of my goals for these cards:

  1. Easily mailed / no extra postage - They get enough as it is in my opinion! 
  2. Wide range of styles that reach out to the young men in our lives, the old or older, the tots, the ones who love jewelry, cuff links, rings, earrings (as so many of them wear now) etc. Basically those who love bling and those who don't!
  3. To use items from my stash that have been long forgotten about! A Must!
  4. To go back to what we did before the giant flowers, the fancy and not so brads, the rhinestones, the glitter glues, the bulky embellishments etc.
  5. To get you all motivated enough to set time aside for making men's cards BEFORE you need them!
More for the men and not the last of them yet! I still have so many men's cards to load it's not even funny, FOR REAL, it's not! I don't know if any of you are tired of seeing them but... Here they are once again. Hope you enjoy this post! 

Thanks for stopping by!

 Didn't know what this one was going to turn into, started to trash it and my friend once again saved it! I just kind of drew the mountains and birds back there. After I'd placed the dog down, I really didn't know what to do with it, but I knew he needed to be looking out at something. Didn't have any mountain stickers or such so...
 These car stickers are very metallic with an irridescence to them

 I used a silver tape that I have had forever and ran it along the edges here. Dare to Dream is a rub-on, the plane is a sticker.
 Free Spirit is a rub-on
 Make a wish is a rub-on

 A Fresh Cuts
 Stickers that I simply overlapped
 These stickers were also overlapped

 Don't know if you can tell, but I actually added some stickles glitter to some of the swooshes around the football. This is a regular size card by the way. 5x7
 This is a 5x7 card and the stickers were overlapped. Cute for a little boy, I thought.
 This is another 5x7 card.
 Another 5x7 card and lots of stickers!
 This is a 5x7 card and the sports items are punch-outs. I was hesitant about entering this card but, I thought it would be cute for a little girls soccor player to give to her Dad, Brother, Uncle etc. What do you think?
 This car I  cut from an ad! The rest are stickers and paper.
 Hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks again for stopping by! See Ya!


  1. Hi Bethann! Well I have several favorites in this post! I absolutely love the tool cards. Are those stickers?!? They are so cute, and I have never seen them before. I also love that little soccer girl. I do have some of these little people cutouts, so thank you very much for the ideas and the layout. I also love the cute card that your friend correctly told you to figure out a way to salvage! That little doggie is so cute! And your lighthouse boat card is another great design. I am impressed that you have done all this with your stickers and die cuts. Hopefully one day soon I will get around to using some of my old supplies, but for now....Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Bethann, Thanks for poppin' in to see me..You are so kind to offer me the shrink plastic but a craft store where I shop sells it...She sent me an email after reading it on my blog..Again thanks for the generous offer!
    Question: Do you sell your men's cards because you would sell heaps as I am sure there are never enough male cards around, and your's are fantastic :)
