Super Simple Masculine Card

I debated whether or not to even show this card on my blog since its SO SIMPLE, but then I thought, why not, just about everyone is looking for easy to make, fast, masculine card ideas. I know I am! I do a card ministry at my church where I have to send out birthday, anniversary, get well, sympathy, encouragement, new baby, etc. cards to members of our congregation, and every single time I have to send a card to a man, I NEVER have one already done in my stash. Why? Because I tend to make cutesy or feminine cards, since that's my style. So, when I looked at my birthday list last week and realized I had to send a card to a grown man and had nothing in my stash, I thought, 'Shoot, I'm going to have to quickly make one before I leave for work'. I literally threw this card together in about 15 minutes. I know, it looks it. LOL! I knew this gentleman loved sports, and played golf, so I chose this image that I bought from the dollar bin at JoAnn's. I barely colored it at all, so that was a huge time saver! The sentiment is computer generated. The paper is DCWV 'All About Guys' Stack. The only embellies I added were a bit of ribbon and some brads. The main image panel is up on dimensionals. See, I told you it was simple! But I'm sure he liked it!

Have a great day! Amy


  1. Fabulous Amy! I do think guys prefer simple. One year I gave dh a card with a lot of metal embellishments on it, and he asked "what are they supposed to do?" LOL! What do you say to that?

  2. I don't think it looks 'thrown together', I think it looks well planned out. The choice of plaid paper is perfect for a golf theme and the sentiment is so cute. I'm sure he will love it.

  3. I am quite sure he loved. I think guys like simple cards.. They don't like fluff.. Great job Amy.

  4. Perfect masculine card. Guys don't like all the extra fluff.
    Awesome design and paper!
