I have some old SU sets - fishing, golf. I also use lighthouses, Winds of Grace both work well. Clear dollar stamps have some adorable "tools" and words with them. Check them out. I got the tools and words both just so I would have something for guys.

Another easy thing to do for a guy-card is to use the sentiment for the main image..........I have also used the squarish motif in Baroque Motifs for masculine cards............using guy friendly colors.

These are great ideas, I really appreciate them. I am so drawn to florals that I'm sometimes challenged to come up wtih guy images. Here are some of the SU sets from my collection that have worked for guy cards:

Farm Fresh (they look like fruit box labels, they are fun in brown on kraft)
the Fleur-de-Lis stamps from Timeworn Trim or Carte Postale
All about Argyle - The argyle pattern is fun
Peaceful Wishes - evergreen boughs
I just ordered the Cardinal stamp that I think would be a good one for men.


I clearly need to invest in a few more guy stamps! thanks for the ideas.

Juno

Default Gender Neutral (?) Card

I had to make some masculine cards a while back and here is what I came up with:
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=171302
I guess its not really masculine per say as more gender neutral. Anyway, I liked the result so much I made a bunch of them.

The red is on raised dimentionals although you can't see that from the picture.

I find it hard sometimes to come up with the masculine card.. but I do have these that I did with in my gallery.. At the Races, Balmy Breeze, Calm Seas, Fishy Friends. The tutorial on the folded oragami shirt is good too.. Anything Firefighter.. Uhm even the horses can be turned to make it more masculine.
