I needed to make a retirement card for my brother-in-law, so for inspiration, I used 2 challenges:
1. Splitcoaststampers' Color Challenge - CC342 - cherry cobbler, early espresso, pool party and neutrals of your choice; and
2. Cards for Men Challenge 20 - sports theme.
This Graphics 45 - A Proper Gentleman - is my favorite paper line to use for masculine cards. Everything coordinates so beautifully and is definitely masculine. I used textured SU cardstock, looks like linen...I think it's also very classy, just like my brother-in-law. I think he'll like this. They live in Florida, and I'm sure he'll spend a lot of his retirement time golfing. tfl
