Default Sympathy cards for Men

Hi,
Just wondering if anyone would be willing to post some examples from their gallery for sympathy cards for men. I always have a time with this particular type of card. Seems I don't need them often,thankfully, but never know where to begin. TIA, Linda

Sorry, but my brain is a little slow today. Did you mean cards to send to a man who is grieving, or to the survivors of a man who passed away?
Either way, here are a few from my gallery that I think would suit:

purple bridge sympathy

pine tree sympathy (a really easy one!)

oak tree sympathy

Alternatively, you could just change the sentiment on something like this one:
moss birthday tree

Default here are 2 of my examples

Hi!

Here's one I made for both a female and a male friend...my male friend really liked it.
Simple Sympathy <--click!

I used these stamp sets:
  • Art of the Orient - SU!
  • Anna Griffin's Sentiments
  • Japanese by All Night Media

I've also used this one (I embossed the same 'With Sympathy' stamp in the bottom, right-hand corner):
Orient birdy on branch <--click!

Thanks to everyone so far. Thought about using the Lovely as a tree and something nautical, esp since those are the only masculine stamps I have. Great examples so far. To clarify this card is for a man who lost his Mother. Thanks again,Linda

You can add a "With Sympathy" to this and it would make a beautiful male card. This is not a SU stamp but you could do it with lovely as a tree. I used it for a Father's Day card and my husband loved it because it was so masculine.

These are tough cards to do. Here is an example from my gallery.

Here are links to a couple I made:

This one is made with Lovely as a Tree and could be used as Sympathy card:

This one is made with a brass stencil and a stipple brush:
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=48698

I also think that you could use a floral one, like Easy Elegance or Watercolor Garden. Do it in black and white--do the flower in black ink on white paper, then use some kind of black and white BG. I don't have any examples, but I have seen some in the galleries. Keep the colors muted--B&W, or browns and golds. Don't use ribbon, or use twill or something muted, not shiney or filly (no orgundy.)

Those are my suggestions. Hope that helps.
