Magnificent Men at Ooh La La

Hi Again!
We have a new challenge at
This time I have chosen the theme - a rather difficult one
Magnificent Men
I find cards for men quite difficult to make; what can I use to decorate with, how much can I decorate it,   even the folding sometimes is hard to figure out…So I hope many, many of you join the challenge, to share ideas for your masculine cards.
No - it doesn´t have to be cards for a hero or a kind of superman, just for those everyday-men who also deserves a card for a birthday, a fathers day or simply to say "thank you"…

This is a foldingtechnique I´ve used for many of the masculine cards I´ve made.
Inside there´s a "pocket" that gives space for either money or a giftcard (for what do I buy for a man???)
I´ve used papers from OLL and an Elvis-image I found on the internet a long time ago. I saved it, ´cause I knew that someday I´d use it - and isn´t it just perfect with these papers?!

For more inspiration and wonderful creations, visit Ooh La La, to see what the rest of the girls have come up with :)
