Struggle with Cards for Men?

Are you like me and struggle to make cards for men? I find it really difficult as I'm drawn to ribbon, bright colours and a bit of bling all of which don't exactly equal a male card! So a little while ago, I had to make a card for my brother and this is what I came up with. It is very simple, but effective. I think I will use this design often for male cards!

I have used black, crumb cake, baja breeze and confetti white for the colours. The scalloped bottom broder is easily done by punching circles using a circle punch and then layering them up in the pattern. The stamp is one from a Sale-a-bration set which is no longer available (sorry!). To finish it off, I added a couple of matching baja breeze brads.

This next card is not really a male card, but thought I'd add it in as it uses the same stamp as above. This one has bling (I love bling on cards!).

I love this colour combo...tempting turquoise, rich razzleberry and black! I've used the SU black satin ribbon and two rhinestone jewels. The rich razzleberry has been embossed using a Big Shot embossing folder. Another extremely simple, but effective card.
