This is my second masculine card and I really love how it turned out. I made this card for my Dad for Father’s Day. I love the color combination of light blue, tan, and black. It looks masculine but it’s also pleasing to the eye (at least my eye :)). This argyle pattern doesn’t have to be used just for men either. If you change the colors, it can be used for ladies as well (pink, yellow, white for example). I like the simplistic look of this card. It’s not too fussy and the colors make its own statement. I kept the inside of the card minimal as well by adding the Happy Father’s Day phrase found on Wild Card and the corresponding fish icon. I added Stardust Stickles to make the fish pop and the hints of silver and blue in the glitter work well with the card’s colors. I hope you like my interpretation of the argyle card. Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there.
