It seems that in cardmaking one of the biggest challenges is that of creating a masculine card. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the abundance of flower stamps and/or cutesy stuff. But the masculine type card often seems to be elusive to many papercrafters.
I have a card here that, for several reasons, would fit the bill as a good masculine card. First of all, it's the color palette -- neutral. Secondly, it's the theme -- nature. Third, it's not at all cutesy. Masculine.
However, I personally, would be thrilled to receive this card. I love every element of it.
