Nature Themed Masculine Cards with Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  A lot of us struggle when it comes to making masculine cards, especially when we try to add ribbon.  Today, I have a pair of nature themed masculine cards with ribbon to share that I hope will give you some ideas you can use when making your own masculine cards.

I found this paper stack at Tuesday Morning.  It's an older collection from Paper House, but I love the botanical images  and green hues.  Happily, the papers worked really well with the 5/8" Bud Green Taffeta Ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.

I used my Zutter Bow it All Tool to tie this double loop bow.  Then I topped it with a loopy Gold Metallic String Bow and a vintage button from my stash.  Natural Burlap String is wrapped around the base of the card and knotted through the Tim Holtz Word Band. I love the texture that the ribbon, burlap string, metal charm, button and foiled paper add to this card design.

I decorated the inside with more paper layers, and added a little pocket, too.

This card combines masculine papers with metal gears, burlap string and a 5/8" Moss/Cream Gingham Bow.

And here's a peek at the inside.  Simple, but just right for most guys, I think.  

I hope I've shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.
