Authentique Party Snarky Masculine Birthday Wishes
Hello, Friends! Can I tell you a secret? I love to make masculine cards. And this Snarky Masculine Birthday Wishes card makes me fairly giddy with glee. It was perfect for our youngest son’s birthday celebration last month. He has always been the practical, organized, level headed guy who always has a plan and I(almost) always has his act together. This is probably the sort of thing he would wish for on his birthday!
Tips for Using Ribbon on a Masculine Card
I also love to demonstrate how easy it is to use ribbon on a masculine card in a way that is not to frilly or frou-frou. Want to know my secret? Choose patterns and textures that make you think of mens’ ties and suits! It’s a “win” every single time!
For this card, combine Shell Grey Shimmer Satin Ribbon with Black and Grey Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon for the win! The crisp finish of the satin ribbon speaks to men’s formal wear while the pattern on the grosgrain ribbon would look right at home on a tie. Top the bow with a little birthday cake charm and a masculine button. Layer the patterned ribbon over the satin ribbon. Then top with buttons for a look that resembles a French Cuff on a man’s dressy shirt.
Use Scor-Tape to adhere the ribbons, and wrap the ends around the back of your card panel for a neat and tidy finish.
Here’s a peek at the inside:
Clean and simple, but still fun. That’s how to make a great masculine card!
