The Male Room - Make Ribbon Masculine!

Well the theme at The Male Room this time, " Make Ribbon Masculine" was quite a challenge! Eventually I came up with the idea of trying to make a rosette!

I cut a circle of card and backed it with double sided strong adhesive. Originally I was going to use a narrower ribbon in Midnight Muse but couldn't get it to look right until I realised I needed a wider ribbon. This was the most masculine I'd got even though it's Calypso Coral! However I think the wood background made it a bit more male orientated!

 I'm afraid the photo is really, really rubbish- to start with Sunday was so dark I thought I'd wait to photograph it, then Monday was lovely and bright but of course I then got shadows! 

The rest of the DT have some lovely inspiration for you!


  1. What a great design got a male card. They always seem to be a bit of a challenge, but this one is perfect. x

  4. What an inspired idea! Using the wood grain background also adds to the masculinity. Fab card

  5. I think this is a great male card. They are so hard to do and this is perfect. I love the woodgrain background and the 40 on the rosette is great. It is not fussy at all.

  6. Oh I do like the rosette idea - it's perfect for a masculine card. The woodgrain background adds a sense of texture. Great work.

  7. This is a great 40th birthday card for a man. It's like saying 40th is great!:o)
