A Masculine Card...............

It is Paige's boyfriend's birthday today so she asked me to make her a card for him,eekkk!!!! They have been friends for years but they have only just recently started going out so she didn't want anything lovey dovey.
I don't have a lot of male orientated stash so I really do struggle,my theory now though is to keep masculine cards simple so that's what I did.
I saw this cute sketch over at Cardabilities and decided to use that as my starting point.


Here's my finished card:


All the papers are from my scrap box, the stamped sentiment and clip are from Stampin'Up. Nice and simple,just hope he likes it !!!!!

how could he not love it - it's great. you did one similar to this a few months ago and I used it for my inspiration for Ted's card and voucher - the strips in masculine colours work so well and I added string rather than a strip of paper.
