A Couple of Masculine Cards With Tags

Masculine Thank You Card
 I have not quite decided what constitutes a 'masculine card'.  If it has Tim Holtz Gears/Sprockets on it than it seems it should immediately qualify as a masculine card, if one wants it to.  The top card has one of them on there.  And the card is brown.  That automatically places it in the running for a masculine card.  This card has lots of layers using different manufacturers' papers, but they all work together nicely. The top tag is a fussy cut from Bo Bunny. The ruler and 'this belongs to' tag were fussy cut from a CTMH B & T paper.  The next layer is also from Bo Bunny, from their Timepiece Noteworthy collection.  The bottom paper, which is adhered to a plain white cardstock base, is a long retired SU! designer paper.  I colored the metal tag with a couple of Copics and wrote the letter "C" on it.  I sanded it a bit to rough it up.  There is a bit of sewing on the card, also. If you click on the picture, you can see it a bit better.
SEI, American Crafts and CTMH Papers and Embellishments
 Masculine doesn't have to be macho.  Some men like flowers and butterflies. My dear grandfather loved to garden.  Ok, so maybe this one is not AS masculine as the first.  But there are pieces of wood on it.  It could go either way, I guess.
I fussy cut the jar from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan paper.  The SEI butterfly and flowers are from their Die Cut Accents - Field Notes and Desert Springs. The wooden dragonfly and the small flower are from CTMH.  I stamped the cute wooden tag with Stazon ink using a stamp from the JustRite Fleur De Lis Labels Twenty set.  The tag was in the button department at Joann's. Six in a package for less than $3.00! The green background paper is a retired CTMH B & T.
Inside Card - Fussy Cut Label From CTMH
I know that I can not be the only one with paper older than my children, so I wanted to show how brand new (current) paper can be used with things from several years ago.
Thank you for visiting today!
