Hi All,

Hope you've been enjoying the men's cards I've been posting for the past few months (made over 500). I have a few more after this one so... Here We Go!

Below is a list of expectations I had in mind when I started this project, so think about them as you view these cards.

  • Easily mailed / no extra postage - Postal Service gets enough as it is in my opinion! 
  • 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!
  • To use items from my stash that have been long forgotten about! A Must!
  • To go back to what we did before the giant flowers, the fancy and not so fancy brads, the rhinestones, the glitter glues, the bulky embellishments etc.
  • To get you all motivated enough to set time aside for making men's cards BEFORE you need them!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll come back soon and often!

 This card and the next 7 are all cut from the same decorative paper! This paper had so much going on within the graphics that I was sure I could cut it up and use it in pieces! Check em' out! Simply stamped a sentiment.
 Again, a stamped sentiment. I did mat the decorative paper with a nice coordinating blue.
 Stamped sentiment along with a popped up 3-D candle sticker.
 This is the same paper, believe it or not, simply again, added a stamped sentiment, matted with blue on black card.
 Here's the same paper, just a smaller piece, with a nice vintage look sticker, a Creative Memories black sticker strip and a stamped sentiment.
 Simply stamped a sentiment.
 Stamped sentiment and added the boat Cut-Out, added some blue paper underneath on white card.
 Same paper matted with nice blue paper underneath on white card with 1 coordinating blue gem.
 I'm kind of sad about the way this plaid paper photographed. It's very pretty. It is very shimmery almost with a gold dust look over it! Added the Fresh Cuts cut-out with some vintage look stickers. Stamped sentiment in lower corner of Fresh Cut.
 This image is simply a large punch-out I've had for a long time. Never got rid of it because I was sure I would use it some day...that day came years later! LOL! I did pop it up.
 Fresh Cut, matted stamped sentiment.
Fresh Cut with a vintage car sticker.

  1. Hi Bethann, Well I made it around! I actually like the muscle flexing image. It reminds me of Vaughn and Gene working out. I remember them both trying to see how many pull ups they could do to outdo each other. I also really like the image of the two brothers back to back. And I like how you used the plaid paper on it. The DAD card is cool. It looks like a work of modern art! See you next time! Hugs!
