Here are two male cards I made for Creations by Crafty Card Gallery, the magazine below. There are lots of ideas and advice on making male cards. This is a challenge for me so I enjoyed reading the advice in the magazine. I made these cards very simple and clean. The sentiment is Studio G and the candles are cut from Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge.
These cards were published in this fantastic new magazine. You can get a digital copy for only $2.99 or ordered a paper copy if you prefer. You can find this magazine here http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/407709
