Just a masculine card

With two boys and one man in the house, I'm always in need of masculine cards - you know, for friends' birthdays etc. The kids are older now, so tractor and soccer cards are not what they need anymore - they prefer cards for teenagers. Themes for teenagers are very easy to find - NOT - but bikes seem to go for all ages:




This card is simply made of a folded black cardstock, an overlay, a bike metal clip and some wood stars. Believe me; It's harder to get a decent photo of a card with shiny overlay than making the actual card :-)

The stars and metal clip add depth to the card, but it's still not bulky:



This card is my entry for the first October Card challenge at Sketch-And-Scrap: Make a masculine card.


Please tell me, do you struggle about themes for masculine cards, too, or is it just me?

This is such a perfect card! The bike clip is incredible! I tend to do a simple design with masculine colors when creating my manly cards! Pretty boring! This card is stellar. Great work! Thank you so much for sharing your work with us at Sketch N Scrap!
