Wow! My man is hard to please. My mom requested some birthday cards for some men we know that are having birthdays coming up. So I went on a mission to make a pile of man cards that would please a man. Harder than I thought! As I said, my man is harder to please than I thought. He took it personally when I asked his opinion and so I got the honest truth from him. This is how I started out. I really like these first 3 but he said the bling and the ribbon had to go. What? I thought this was a pretty manly brad but my mistake. I understand the ribbon though. So I tried again. The string is fine now but he now said the bird was something he would only give to his dad. Well now at least I have a card for an older man. lol.
So I went over the top simple. Nice he said. I am not sure. Are his comments improving any??? Anyways, I like the paper on this one. This textured dsp called To The Ninies Specialty is thick enough that you don't need any other cardstock to back it up. I love how you get a beautiful print on the inside as well! Well, then I found this great card on Carrie Gaskin's blog. She originally made it for a wine topper but I made a few minor changes and can you believe it? I actually got a great big smile on my man's face. Yeah! Success.
So I had to try one last time and got another smile from my husband, but we both agreed that this would make a better card for a little man's birthday.
