Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

A Male Birthday Card

I really enjoy making cards but I often struggle with making cards that are meant for men. With the scrapbooking industry being inundated with products such as flowers, buttons, ribbon, glitter, and flourishy things, it can get hard to keep a project looking masculine.

So after looking for a good design I incorporated some ideas I found into one and came up with the following card for my best friend's birthday.

So tell me what you think. Did I keep it masculine enough?

(A list of products used is available if desired)

I think it looks great! Very fun, but still masculine.
