Hello!  It’s the third Monday of the month, which means it’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy.  For the next two weeks, we’re focusing on creating cards for the guys in our lives.  Your card can be for a young boy, a young adult, or an older gentleman – so long as it’s A2 sized, doesn’t have lumpy, bumpy embellishments, and can be mailed at the regular first class postage rate.

I have to confess that I wasn’t feeling very creative when I was trying to make my sample card for this challenge, so I decided to browse through the sketch library on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog.  I found an older one that looked like it would work well with designer papers.  So I chose it and let the designer papers do most of the creative work for me.  Once I chose the papers, it was pretty simple to put it all together.  The dew drop embellishments are a little thicker than what I normally use on cards, but because they are less than 1/4″ thick they still fit the CIE challenge requirements.

We hope you’ll have fun with this challenge and share your masculine card with us at Cards in Envy!  Link your card to our challenge post by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, May 31.  Happy crafting!
