It's no secret that masculine cards can be difficult to create. We have so many flowers and cute little critters to use on our projects, but sometimes the guys get shafted.
Last Christmas, I requested a Silhouette Cameo and have used it for a lot of invitation and stationery projects so far. Just recently, I started using it for scrapbooking and card making creations. I purchased a set of mounted deer heads the other day with some free credits I had that were soon to expire. When asked to make a 'manly' card, I knew exactly what I would be using!
This card is for my brother, Dan's, 33rd birthday in November. With the baby due on November 15th, I know I won't have time to make Dan a birthday card, so I figured I'd have it ready early.

I'm really loving the neutral color scheme with pop of shimmery gold on this card. For now, it'll be set aside to be sent out later. And to be honest, knowing me, it'll probably be sent out late.
