Card sets for *gulp* guys


My dear friend, Theresa, often needs thank you cards. I happily make them for her to send to her clients. Some of these cards she requests are also for clients who are (gulp...) men.

More often than not, cards for men seem to be the card maker's toughest card to make. At least for a lot of us. Some of you seem to make the best cards for guys, but I am not one of those that sits down and makes them with ease.


I was inspired to make this set by the Card Sets Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. And have already sent these cards off with Theresa as she has left to travel on another business trip to see these fabulous male clients. Sure hope they like these!


I also used my April kit from The Sampler. This month's kit had this fabulous green woodgrain from American Crafts. And I have stretched it as far as I could, having used it on these 3 cards as well as a layout you'll see next week. Such a great color green, isn't it?!

The Crate border stickers in the kit were perfect for this card set as well.

I hope I've inspired you to take on making a set of cards for the guys in your life. Father's Day is right around the corner...

Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading my blog today!

These turned out great! I struggle with guy cards too when the fact is, the guys, while grateful, probably don't care what they look like! Haha! Have a great day!

these are awesome! guy cards CAN be so hard --they just dont make the equivalent of cute flowers, ribbons etc for men!
