Masculine card for a wedding? Engagement? Something!

 Here's something you don't see very often - a masculine card for a wedding or engagement - what if you're a bloke and you want to give a card and can't stand all the flowery, glittery things you sometimes see in the card shops?  You need something like this:

I'm submitting this to The Paper Players for their CAS masculine challenge. 

This card started off completely different - when I made this card >>>>>>>>>
I stamped the sentiment OK, and then dropped the ink pad on the card!  I didn't want to waste a perfectly good piece of PTI white card, so I decided to cover up my boo boo!  I had to start the original card from scratch.  That's the fantastic thing about paper crafting - you can often rescue a blunder :)


  1. I love it!! All engagement and wedding cards seem to be aimed at women. You know what, when gay marriage is FINALLY legalised in this country, I'm going to give it to my first male friend/relo to get engaged... :)

  2. Thank you for the inspiration! I do need a masculine wedding card. Now I got the idea.
    Have a nice weekend!
    Greetings, Judith

  3. Oh no! Good thing you were able to rescue your creation---I just love the font on this sentiment! Thanks for playing with us at the Paper Players this week---again!

  4. I love them both! What a sweet card with that wee house! Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players!

  5. Absolutely awesome! I love the bold, graphic design! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  6. I like knowing that I am not the only one who has dropped an inkpad on my project. Lol! This is one awesome cover-up! Love the mix of paper you used and that sentiment is fantastic. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

  7. Cool, clean and graphic! I love it!!
