Yes, I too struggle with cards for a man! It's hard not to use any ribbons, rhinestones or frills! This card uses the stamp resist technique and also the layout from a card done by Gina K. I combined two of her cards to come up with my version. I computer printed the "Happy Birthday" script, stamped the leaf design with Versamark and used clear embossing powder. Then I used Ranger Rick inks on a pad and blended it over the clear stamp, and added a few buttons (not too feminine!). It made a nice card for my male friend!
