Masculine Cards at The Craft's Meow

The Craft's Meow

Welcome to our monthly Blog Hop at The Craft's Meow.  Each month we choose a different theme, and this month it's Masculine cards.  You should have arrived here from Karen's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, please go to The Craft's Meow blog, where there will be a list posted, and once you get started, you'll be directed from one blog to the next.  Here's my card for today:

TCM Masculine Blog Hop, June 7

Masculine cards are difficult for me, but I've found that choosing masculine colors and keeping the design simple usually pleases most men.  I used this argyle pattern from the Holiday Foundations set, stamping it in 3 different colors, and then simply added a big sentiment from our Many Thanks set.

Holiday Foundations


Many Thanks

Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop of our Hop, including the Craft's Meow blog, by 11:59 EST Sunday, June 9.  Lisa will choose one lucky person to win a stamp set of her choice and the winner will be announced on Monday, June 10!

Thanks for visiting me today!  Now hop on over to Nina's beautiful blog for another masculine card idea!

  16. The argyle is perfect for a masculine card. I never think of looking at my seasonal sets to see if there's anything that can be used for other occasions. I really like that sentiment set, too.
