Rumple Ribbon on a Masculine Card -- Really!!

Hi Rumple Ribbon friends!  It's Ellen CardMonkey back with another card that features one of my very favorite accents: Lovebug Creations' Rumple Ribbon -- this one in "Eyes of Blue".

Do you have as much difficulty as I do coming up with masculine cards?  I usually cop out and buy those cards -- the guys never seem to appreciate the time put into custom cards anyway.  Or is it just my guys??  Well I have a friend who rides a Hog (Harley-Davidson), and I thought maybe he would like this ...



The outside of the card is fairly simple; that elegant blue edge is the Rumple Ribbon. I love how it blends with the Close To My Heart "Later Sk8r" paper.  Inside, the motorcycle on the move actually pops up from the card when it's opened.  

I used Close to My Heart stamp sets: "Born to Ride" and "Card Chatter - Birthday", along with CTMH stamp pads in the ink colors: Lagoon and Outdoor Denim Blue. If you're interested in purchasing any CTMH products, please be in touch with your favorite consultant (and I hope that's me!).

I do find it so difficult to create masculine cards... I love yours - the colors, design, and of course the ribbon and CTMH stamps! I do need to buy some CTMH stuff at some point...
