Masculine Love Cards

It’s hard to make lovey dovey cards for guys right? I just got this great set from CTMH that made it so much easier. I’m making these for my craft sale so the attributes listed don’t reflect any particular person in my life but selected ones of course apply to my boys and hubby.

checklist1My instinct was to distress these so much more but I’ve read that a lot of people at craft fairs think distressing looks dirty rather than antique! Bummer!

checklist2I checked with hubby and he says these are guyish enough for even the manliest man.


checklist3My almost 9 y o son thinks this last one is the coolest. He likes the screw head brads and the corduroy ribbon. It is really soft and fuzzy, I am having fun working with it.

I am so sorry I haven’t posted lately. I am just now, three weeks later, getting better from a cold. I don’t think I’ve ever had a stupid cold that has lasted so darn long. I hope to make up for it in the next week or so. Thanks for hanging in with me.

Enjoy, Rebecca

these are a great set- i don't actually celebrate valentines day as such but they could be used for so many other celebrations

she looks sweet I didn't realize she was the same as the other one- colours of copic are not important to me as i don't have any- hard to get in Australia unless you get them over the internet. your colours are very calming and delicate.

I am always trying to figure out what to craft for the boys in my life. Your son is right, the one with the screw brads is the best.
