Black Cat Scraps-Harley Birthday

Given that the recipient likes Harley Davidson and motorcycles, it was easy to make a masculine card. It also helped that he had a short name to fit on the card with those felt stickers with the steel wool on them. Those stickers I found on clearance this year in the Halloween section. I guess the way they are shape is a bit spooky but I saw them more for a masculine card more than anything. Sometimes cards for males can be difficult, especially if you are a female card maker, often lost in uncertainty on how that male would perceive a card. Do they really care? How far girly is too far. What do they want to see in a card? Can you put butterflies and flowers on a card for a male? are their rules or exceptions?

Supplies used:

Card Base- light gray 8" x 5" scored at 1" (The Paper Company)
Pattern paper/textured cardstock- Silver 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" (DCWV Neutrals stack)
Dark gray paper-insert from the letter sticker pack 6 1/2" x (EK success)
