16. Manly card

I challenge us to make "manly" cards for our significant others. You can make a card or a layout.


Here's some inspiration:

Never close your lips to those whom you have opened your heart. -Charles Dickens

To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.-Mark Twain

"There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness." Friedrich Nietzshe

These Valentine quotes are making me laugh out loud.

All you need is love. 
John Lennon

But I have seen thee
And thou art enough. 
G. Moore

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.
Winnie the Pooh

Love, like a river, will cut a new path Whenever it meets an obstacle.  Crystal Middlemas

. . . and here's my card!

Created and first shared April 15, 2009.

Here is my card for hubby! Shhh...don't let him know it is here. We wouldn't want to spoil the fun! I asked him what he thought was "manly man" and we had quiet an interesting discussion (between the sexes) of our view of what was manly. We ended up settling together on his work clothes (because he feels so manly when he works so hard). So, I took a bunch of photos of his clothes and boots. I may share more later as I have time to get them fixed up for you. There is one freebie paper for you that I used in my card in the download.

So, I had to make a card template before I could make the card too! When you use the template, you will see the guides so as to know where to place your stuff within the guides, but they will not appear when you save as a .jpg. Isn't that cool? You cannot move them, but you can turn them off. Under the View drop down menu, uncheck the "guide presets" to turn them off.

Download the quad fold card template, manly paper, and Valentine tag.


Here are your cards!
