GREAT Masculine card Ann...I think they are the toughest to design...lately I've been playing with such girlie bright colored papers that it is hard to figure out stuff for guys....

Great masculine card! You've inspired me for the card I'm making for my student teacher's birthday. This suits him perfectly.

Superb masculine card!

Very cool. You know me... I love "masculine" colors. I have recently grown very fond of Kraft as a base. It's wonderfully neutral... gives a guy feel to cards.

It really is all in the patterned papers you have, too.

This is a terrific guy card. And really simple - just the way guys prefer them.

That is a great card for a man, I know what you mean even in the shops the cards aren't good, always golf clubs or cars not every man likes that.
