CAS at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week our theme at Cardz 4 Guyz is CAS - Clean And Simple - and we'd like to see your CAS cards, suitable for a man.

My card was inspired by a button from a super bargain pack (99p for a bag of 36 jumbo sized mixed pictorial buttons!) that I stumbled upon while browsing Amazon. I loved the spectacle design and thought it would make a great basis for a card. Unfortunately I didn't have a die for spectacles or moustache, so I had to draw them freehand, working on scrap white paper until I was satisfied with the shape and size, then using my white images as a template on black card.

I chose the ribbons to link the cream of the button to the white of the card. I always like grosgrain ribbon on a male card, and gingham works well too as long as it isn't in too girly a colour.

We'd love to see YOUR take on a CAS masculine card - why not pop over to Cardz 4 Guyz and pick up some inspiration from the design team?

I'm sharing this with AAA Cards #35 - Bare Naked CAS

I love the masculine feel of this card - and I completely agree with you that grosgrain ribbon is perfect for masculine cards! This card really embodies CAS and perfectly reflects the Bare Naked theme for our challenge at AAA Cards this week! Thanks so much for sharing! Jill
