Today I am sharing the cards I made for Father’s Day this year for the guys in my life.  These tend to be the hardest cards for me to make.  So although the day is long behind us, if you also find “guy cards” difficult to design, maybe you can get an idea or two from these to help you in the future.

These were for my two sons, both of which are great grillers!

Can you get away with rhinestones on a guy card?

This card was for my father-in-law:

Had fun with my Copics on this one!

And finally, this one was for my hubby:

We are currently living in a very small cabin on a very beautiful lake.

This just seemed so… us!  lol

  2. Susan, I agree regarding masculine cards being difficult to make. Your cards really are the ultimate masculine card. Especially love the your lion card. What beautiful coloring, which looks like watercoloring. Great framing too. Your husband’s card is fabulous! Beautiful rustic scene.

  3. Yes, guy cards are really challenging. I like them all but particularly the camper card. It will be a true keepsake to remind you of this particular summer.
