Many of us find it difficult to make cards for men and boys.
Where there's an abundance of floral, critter and special occasions stamps you really have to hunt around to find stamps that show "men" things.
I find brainstorming themes can help you discover new card ideas.
Here's a few ideas to get you started....so take your pick....
Before starting your cards check out your card sizes and layers.
This cute dog card will be perfect for any male dog lovers.
To create the circular panel stamp a dog stamp (this one's from Stampin Up!) onto white card. Colour the dog and the background. Place to one side.
Select two circle dies to create a circular band for the Happy Birthday die cut. Mount the Happy Birthday die onto to the circular band.
Next die cut the dog image card with the largest circle die. Stick the cut dog image to the back of the circular band so you can see the dog through the "window".
Mount the completed circular panel onto a layer of patterned paper and then onto a card base.
Complete the card with two stamped and punched balloons with white twine for the strings.
"Tank You" was created using the Fintastic Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
Stamp, colour and die cut the fish tank and other images. Glue the images to the inside of the fish tank - creating a fish scene. Add fun foam or foam pads to the back of the fish tank for added dimension.

Heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder onto a strip of black card.
