Good morning. I have been thinking about Men’s cards. I really like to make the pretty card with flowers and ribbon on them. Here is my stab at a man’s card.

5x7 CARD


Anna Griffin Cricut Cuttlebug Pirouette

Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page French Scroll

Spellbinders Label 8

Marianne Creatables Frame and Leaves

Marianne Creatables Bird on a Branch Small

Spellbinders Iron Works

Selected Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Broken China and Walnut Stain


I started by embossing a piece of brown white cord textured paper. I scuffed it and put the ink pad right over the embossing to color the scuffing. Then I placed the paper in the die and tried to line it up to center the design. I glued the Frame and Leave die on the blue paper and trimmed to fit.  The same with the brown paper. Punch the Martha Stewart punch with a 5 x 6 ¾ piece of brown paper.  Cut out the Labels 8 die and cut out the blue paper to fit inside the Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page.  Also it trim the blue to fit under Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page. Also cut out the Bird in the branch out of brown and scuffed it. Cut out the Iron Works and used the walnut stain light over the die cut.
