Masculine Card

Hi Friends,
I'm so happy to be able to create this card because I rarely do any for males. The majority of my family is women so when I saw the challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion - "Male Birthday Card, must use Metal" well I thought... great. I need to add some make birthday cards to my stash. So off I went. The hardest part was trying to get some metal that would still be masculine. I think what I came up with is fine. Just picture that glass shape as a beer mug and it works just fine (lol). Real Men drink martini too. In addition the challenge over at Birthday Sundaes - "Tall/Long Birthday Card". This worked perfect for what I created.
I had to keep it simple to make sure it remained masculine. The stamp print on the banner flags is from MSS (Market Street Stamps) "Argyle". That's one down and 9 more to go of male cards. I told you my stash was low (better yet empty...lol). You still have time to join in on the fun. Check out both of these blogs, grab some inspiration and join the rest of us. Smooches...
