Manly cards are hard to do. When I find some great paper and embellishments that work well for manly cards, I buy it! Graphic45 came out with A Proper Gentleman last year, and it's such an amazing set of papers for making cards for men! I used it to make a birthday card, which I hope to remember to mail to my brother in a few weeks!
This card has many layers and prints. It makes me say, "Yum!"
Metal and tickets are the perfect complement for a manly card.
I hope you are having a great weekend and that it's warm and sunny in your part of the world!
