Masculine cards are hard for me. After raising four girls, I tend to make everything buttons and bows. NOT great on a card for a guy!! I also buy lots of pastel, flowery papers which my grandson (he's ten) fails to appreciate the beauty of. This card, however, I think could be enjoyed by most any male. The "buttons" are actually metal brads and the "bow" is made with twisted floss. As for the papers--not a flower in sight (I bought it with the guys in mind). This Stamp'N Plus Scrap'N image is also most definately male.
