Masculine (Oh, noooooo!)

The theme today at Top Tip Tuesday is masculine.

Anyone who visits me often knows I'm worse than hopeless as masculine cards.  I love pink, cute, sparkle, ribbon and flowers too much.  However, it's Father's day this Sunday, so I gave myself a stern talking to and got crafting.

I'm not sure that I'm entirely happy with the finished card, but the image is just perfect for my dad, who's a bit of a DIY enthusiast.

I've used glossy accents on the spanner, and spectacles, added a couple of blue buttons (one spotty and one striped), sneaked in a bit of spotty ribbon (shhh, no one will notice!) and one of my own circular sentiments.

I echo your post title, as I also am not so good with the masculine cards. However, on this occasion your fears were clearly unfounded. I just love this, the image is so cute and your colour palette is perfect. The papers, like the weathered wood one are spot on for the image.

Thanks for sharing with us
