The man card!

Why is it that we always struggle with making cards for men? It's so easy to find a pretty quote, add a ribbon and a few flowers and we have a lovely card for women. But men don't really appreciate 'pretty' cards so we have to start thinking outside the box and sometimes it's easier said than done.

Our design team have busied themselves this week creating a pile of cards with barely a flower in sight and we think you are going to love the inspiration they have amassed with this wonderful collection of man cards, especially with Father's day only days away!

And if you look closely you'll be able to see a few little extra treats on display with the addition of Echo Park Dots and Stripes paper packs and Spellbinders dies and impressabilities. Our team were in good hands!
