Have you noticed? I’ve been trying to show a card appropriate for men about once a week. Maybe I’ll call it “Manly Monday”! I know that lots of people struggle with this. So, I’ve been pushing to help you out! Here’s a card I made for my husband for our recent anniversary. I used the Nature’s Poem Designer Paper.

He seemed to like it. Sometimes hard to tell!

Design Notes for Nature’s Poem Card:

I think almost all of the papers in this package of Designer Paper are appropriate for a masculine card. It was really just a matter of picking one! The strip of card stock across the card is a coordinating color, Tranquil Tide. I also stamped the sentiment, from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, with Tranquil Tide ink. The Everyday Label Punch was just the right size and shape for this card. The Burlap Ribbon and one of the Leaves Trinkets added just enough texture and interest.

A few days ago I showed you a card where I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the coordinating Framelits. They are all part of the Nature’s Poem Suite. You can see that card here.

Here are some cards from the catalog using the materials in this suite. There are also twines, Leaves Trinkets and a card stock pack. See page 144 in the catalog.

When you are ready to order, just go to my 24-7 on-line store. This month I am sending everyone who orders $50 or more a sampling of the five In-Color ribbons. Just a little thank you from me.

Hope your week is off to a good start.

P.S. Do you think I should make Masculine cards a weekly feature?
