Managed another male card...just!

Hope you are all well on such a wet, cold, dark and blustery night. I like nights like this when I can be inside crafting and can be glad that I'm not outside in it!

I am on a mission to make some men's cards as well as cards for occasions other than just birthdays ready to try sell them for charity and I managed to make this Pink Petticoat card this evening despite finding mens cards hard to make and despite burning my hands and fingers this evening when I very stupidly grabbed, and picked up with both hands, a casserole dish I had just got out the oven! A couple of my fingers are starting to blister even though I ran cold water over them for 10 minutes. Still nothing is going to stop me crafting!

I think the card is lacking something but I don't know what. I want to add ribbons but I know I'll just make it look a bit girly! Maybe three eyelets or buttons in a row bottom right corner but not sure. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! Thank you!!

The card is great as it is, I know what you mean about wanting to add things but not make it girly, I tend to use brads a lot on male cards. x

lovin' your stamped cards Sarah, maybe eyelets, gromlet (if you have a Big Bite), or small buttons like the one below might do the trick!

Oh yes sorry forgot to say, I love your cards they are all fab, keep up the good work.

Lovely cards and stuff Sarah. Sometimes fibres can seem less girly than ribbons if you feel the need to tie something - otherwise I'd go for brads or eyelets for mens cards too.
