Masculine cards are something I struggle with. It's not the making of them I have a problem with, it's coming up with an idea that I like.
I made this one for my brother-in-law, and like my husband, he is an outdoorsy country boy. I love moose and knew he would too so this was pefect. Since we actually have Winter where we live I decided to make it a snowy shaker card to go along with the snow that is in this pre-colored digital image from DeeDee's Digis (no longer in business sorry). The front of the card was embossed with a woodgrain look and inked with "Gathered Twigs" Distress Ink. I added a die cut tree to the front and some Stickles to represent snow.
I actually found some good Challenges too...
