For A Guy

I used to make cards for guys all the time and really enjoyed doing it but the last year or so I've gotten out of the habit and only seem to make one when  I have to have one - and then it's usually done in a hurry.

After my sweet blogging friend Carol sent me some die cuts of this fabulous Kaisercraft deer I decided I was going to use them for birthdays and also Christmas.   Probably anything else I can think of  too since I love this die!

This is super duper extremely simple but sometimes you just have to do one of those even though this may be a little over the top on simplicity.    A lot of guys don't like all the fluff and stuff on a card anyway so I think this will work just fine. 

Since it's completely done in black and white I'll enter it in the Tuesday Throwdown challenge (to use black and white). 

Thanks for stopping by..........

Very dramatic in the b&white, and I love the stag head with that graphic background paper. Ditto with the stitched mat & jute/twine embellishment. Just the right touch for a masculine card. Nice Carol to send the die cuts! TFS & Hugs

I'd just logged on yesterday to comment here and went poof! Our power went out until late in the evening but all is calm for the moment. I love what you've done with this stag image, and the sharp contrast of black and white is perfect with that single strand of twine! A perfect guy card for sure!

So beautiful, Lynn! The black and white is striking and I love that background paper. The diamond geometrics are perfect for a masculine card.

Lynn, this is a very striking card and the background paper sets of the reindeer beautifully. CLASSY!

This is a perfect design for a guy! As you say, they don't care for the frills and most would probably think you fussy cut this handsome guy.
