I find it SO hard to make cards for men. I was recently told by a male friend that he doesn't like the idea of greeting cards - doesn't like giving or receiving them. Part of me was upset that he doesn't like what I like to spend my spare time doing, but a tiny little bit of me thought "well, that's one masculine card I don't have to worry about any more!"
When I do make masculine cards, I try to make a batch of them all the same, so I don't have to think about it again for a while ;)
