Wish Big for the Guys!

Hi Friends! Do you struggle with making masculine cards of any type? Don't feel bad, I struggle as well. Today I thought I would share with you a masculine birthday card, that could easily become a feminine card with just a change of colors and embellishments.

I must admit that I did not come up with this card on my own, remember I said that I struggle as well. So I found my inspiration in this years annual catalog right on page 179. If you know me, you know that I tend to use the Brights collection quite often and this card uses one of those colors! Although, it wasn't a color that I would use often, but it was a fun color to use. The card in the catalog wasn't a birthday card, so I made a few changes so that it would fit my needs. This card used the Big Shot, everything is better with the Big Shot...right?

So are you ready to have a look at finished card?

Do you see what I mean about it being a card that you could easily change up the colors and embellishments to make it feminine? I think I will make that a priority this week to make some more of these cards using some different embossing folders and buttons....I can't wait to see how it  changes the look of the card!
