This is what I've learned so far, as dictated to me by my own man:
1. harware = good. When I showed him the card of the day, the first thing that got a positive comment was the mini office clip.
2. simple is better. This card is way understated. Just enough layering to keep it interesting, but not over-the-top, since that makes it girlier, apparently...
3. patterns: do I even have to tell you that floral is a no-go? ha. Newsprint, houndstooth, argyle, plaid, polka-dots, stars, stripes - all good stuff.
4. graphic elements keep your man-card modern. Or retro-modern, which is what I was going for! My mustache is hand-drawn and cut out - not hard to do! I was going for a whole "barber-shop" theme with this one, I think :)
I hope you enjoyed the card and some of the banter. Have a fabulous day!
