Have not read every post, but those that I did had some great ideas. I don't have trouble with masculine cards, as I tend to like that sort of thing myself. I use trees, plants, weeds, leaves, animals/animal skins, textures, lighthouses, barns, covered bridges, windmills, architecture, homes, ships, background pieces with a sentiment, coffee, beer, cars, tools, clocks/watches, gears, scenes, dragonflies, bees, beetles, BBQ, sea/beach scapes, sunsets, designs, camping, hunting, fishing, games---cards, chess, dice and then any hobbies/interests such as music, cooking, wine, stamp collecting (not the kind we are interested in), sports, motorcycling, traveling, gardening or whatever.

Omigoodness, so sorry for the error! I should clean my glasses! I have some older S&S sets and the packaging was very similar. I will definitely go and check out Stamp Simply!!

I do 20 or so cards per month for my mother in law. Male birthdays were bogging me down! As a matter of fact, just trying to make each card different was getting harder each month.
One day I got the idea to let theme like patterned paper do the work as a panel.
I bought mostly 6x6 pads, trimmed them to 4x5.25 or used a diecut to make a decorative panel.
Then emboss or stamp Happy Birthday. I also stamp elements if the panel a rather plain print.
This keeps it fresh and fun, especially for kid’s birthday cards. Also, not so much ink and stamps all over the place for so many cards.

You can make 6 of each card and keep track of who got them -put a post it note on the one you use last. Then you don't need so many designs and it is less stressful to come up with more ideas.
I was taught this at the very first Stampin Up workshop I went to, and still use it today. No one will get a duplicate card.
