Cards for Men and Boys






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....

  • Hobbies - Photography, gaming, gardening
  • Sport - Surfing, fishing, golf, cycling, football, basketball 
  • Music - Guitar, records, headphones
  • Food and Drink - Beer, wine, coffee, cake, bottle opener, barbecues
  • Travel and transport - Cars, motorcycles, planes, boats
  • Occupational - Tools, toolbox, laptop, phone
  • Clothing - Suits, ties, sneakers, cowboy boots
  • Animals - Pets, horse riding, hunting
  • Nature - Forest, lake and farm scenes


Before starting your cards check out your card sizes and layers.


Happy birthday - Hooray

Cards for men and boys made with dog stamp from Stampin Up!


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.

Die cut the Happy birthday circle frame from My Favorite Things Stamps (MFT Stamps) in silver card.  The frame measure 2 3/4".

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.

Happy Birthday

Create this unusual geometric birthday card with the Trigonometry stamp set from Altenew.

Stamp a selection of the patterned triangles onto light grey card with grey ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  

Randomly stamp other triangles with light grey ink over the embossed images.

Complete with a sentiment on light grey card layered onto silver card.  Mount with foam pads across the bottom of the card front.


Using geometric shapes was one of many wonderful ideas I gained from the "For the Guys" class at the Altenew Academy 

It's a great source of inspiration if you are looking for more card ideas for men and boys.
