Male cards, yuck! No I like the way this one came out. I found this silver paper around Xmas time at Michaels on clearance and snatched all they had left. It looks great embossed. I cut the label from the wonderful Lacy Labels, add a couple large brads, and a ribbon and done. Well I added a couple white metal accents with my Irock in two corners and ink stitched around the card as well. I love the ink stitching. It really livens (I think that is how you spell that) things. I was always hesitant because I can't make a straight line to save my life but I realized it does not need to be perfect to look good.
