Finding the perfect card for a man can be difficult. Instead of wasting time searching for the perfect card for the man in your life, create your own. All you need are a few basic art supplies and 5-by-7-inch blank folded cards from your local stationery shop. Creating a card with your own two hands will make the sentiment held within even more special. There are several ideas for masculine cards that can be made in a jiffy.

Manly Mustache

Create a simple card by cutting out a moustache shape from a piece of brown cardstock. Outline the border of the moustache with a silver glitter pen. Glue the moustache in the centre of a red folded card. Write a greeting on the outside of the card and a message on the inside.

Single Leaf

An orange skeleton leaf from your local craft shop is the starting point for the perfect card for a man. Hand-rip a 5-by-5-inch piece of bright orange cardstock into a rectangular shape. Spray the front of the card with spray-on adhesive. Affix the skeleton leaf in the centre of the rectangle. Spray the back of the orange rectangle with the spray-on adhesive and affix it in the centre of a white folded card. Write a greeting on the outside of the card and a sentiment on the inside.

Blue Mosaic

Hand-rip blue and brown cardstock into 2-by-2-inch squares. Spray a white folded card with spray-on adhesive. Arrange the squares into a checkerboard pattern. Write a sentiment on the inside of the card.

Nifty Necktie

Cut a necktie shape out of red cardstock. Outline the border of the tie with a black permanent marker and draw diagonal stripes. Glue the necktie in the centre of the card. Write a greeting on the outside of the card and a message on the inside.

Pinstripes Sand Escape

Apply craft glue in straight vertical lines across a blue folded card. Sprinkle various colours of sand across the glue. Shake off excess and allow it to dry. Write a greeting on the front and a sentiment on the inside.

Inspirational Quotes

Write inspirational quotes or sayings around the border of a white folded card. Continue writing until there is only a small blank area in the centre. Write a small quote in the middle of it. Write a sentiment on the inside of the card.
