Cute Card Thursday - have a giggle

As soon as I saw this weeks challenge I had to get to making the card right away. It's my son's birthday later this month and as he is an avid golfer I knew it was going to be an easy one (I hate making men's cards - don't know anyone that really enjoys making them lol).


The stamp is one I got off Ebay yonks ago, there is no makers name on, just ASR 678 G so if anyone knows the make I would appreciate the info thanks. The papers are (I think) MME which I got from Sally for Christmas - I love these Sally, they are so perfect for mens cards. I used a Martha Stewart Zig Zag punch on the red mat for a bit of extra detail as the card is rather plain (for me it's waaaaaay too plain, hence the corner with the 3 brads - it looked too bare lol).

The sentiment is a quote I found off kind Mr Google - what would we do without him. The font is Missy BT, don't think it's a free font sadly. I pierced the top corner of the image with a Stampin Up mat pack (this is one of the most useful things I have bought).


Thanks for looking,

  2. Fab card Bev and what a great image. I am terrible at men cards, like you I feel they are always so bare, but you have done a great job here.

    Have a great weekend.

  7. You did a great job making this card, it's beautiful. I don't like making cards for men either, LOL. I just love girly colours, flowers & glitters too much ;o)

  9. Brilliant Bev - I'm giggling!!
    Love the colours and the papers you've chose- superb.
    Thanks for the tip on the SU matt - I use a piece of mesh which isn't brilliant.
    Thanks for all you lovely comments - especially the one on the round card.
    Coming from such a brilliant card creator it really touched me.

  15. Awesome card Bev! Love the image, very fun and perfectly colored and the sentiment works great! I think you did a fabulous job on this masculine card, you'd never know you don't like to make them. Although, I'd have to agree, they aren't as much fun to make as others, I struggle too. Love all the stitching and papers too. A perfect card! :)

  18. Bev,
    I don't think this card is plain at all. Most men don't like "as my hubby says" a lot of clutter. It is perfect. I am so glad you could use the papers. Is the corner a punch?

  19. Fantastic card Bev and I love the papers and image. I was only saying on my blog the other day, I am enjoying making boys cards at the moment - perhaps boys are easier than men ! LOL

    Take care,

  67. It worked, Bev! I sure got a good chuckle with your fabulous card! I think you did a Great job with making a masculine, card! It is tough to get inspired to make a card for a guy! It would be easier if they didn't mind them being pink, frilly with pretty prima flowers on them, lol!!! I love the papers and colour combo you used! I showed my hubby (a golfer) and he had a good laugh too!!!
