Man Card

If you are like me, you are always in search of good ideas for man cards. I left this one sentiment-less so I can make it whatever I need it to be when the situation arises. And I will be making several more of these, maybe in different colors.

And if you notice, yes, that is hunter green cardstock. I hate hunter green. But yes, I bought some pinefeather cardstock JUST for a 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 piece to go on my swatch ring. And it is next to my new leaf card swatch, and I thought it didn't look too bad with it. And I might as well get some use out of it.

I channeled my inner Jackie Pedro and wound the twine around the pinefeather panel multiple times and then threaded and tied it through a wood button. It's still manly!

Thanks for stopping by!

The wooden button is definitely manly. I really like the distressed edges on the new leaf panel.

I love how you can use twine on a manly card and still have it be manly!!! this is great, I'm not a hunter green fan, either...looks good here, though.
