Default Anniversary card for a man

A friend asked me to make a wedding anniversary card for her husband. His favorite color is black. I have no idea what to make for him. Any suggestions?

Default Black, Burgundy & White

I made an anniversary card for my DH using black, burgundy and white. I used By Definition for the background. I don't have a picture of it handy that I could upload, but hopefully that helps at least a little.

Whew! I don't think of black as a color, but then..... I'm not him. I do like the idea of adding burgundy.
Do you know if he has any favorite "things?" Motorcycles? Lions? Cowboy stuff? Antique cars? Roses? Any idea she could provide would give you a head start on a card.
(I can't quite imagine an anniversary card with a black heart)

You could dry emboss on black 4 x 5.25 with shapes and mount to a colored card. Then make a tag in the same color with a happy anniversary stamp and adhere it to the card. Black is tough.

Hi...I have been working on ideas for Male Cards lately too. Check out "Male SU Card Whimsical Alpha" in my gallery (click link below) to see one I just uploaded. It's not in black, but you might like the idea. HTH! LM

Default Thanks for your suggestions

I liked all of the suggestions. I didn't think of black as a color either, but I will have to add something to it to give it some "life".

Thanks.

My mom made an anniversary card for my stepdad using black & white. She stamped the Stipple Rose in black onto white cs, then layered that onto black cs. She stamped it a second time & cut out only the rosebud, then colored the bud red. She layered that with black & mounted it over the uncolored bud. It's the "Spotlight" technique. It was really elegant, but not feminine even though it was a flower.

I just posted this card earlier today. It's chocolate chip and ruby red but could easily be done in black:

Here is the one I made for DH for our 4th anni. It is pretty Victorian, but I think in black and white would be quite masculine. The centre rectangle on the front opens up to reveal some sentiments.

Be sure to post your resulting card so we can all ooh and ahh over it! You can never have too many masculine card and anniversary ideas!

I wasn't planning on adding this to my gallery because it's so plain but I did when I saw your request.

See the card I made herehttp://splitcoaststampers.com/galler...0&ppuser=37748

Male cards are always hard for me.
