Masculine cards are really hard to make, for me anyway. I find myself wanting to dress it up and then feeling like I'm made it too girly. But if I don't embellish it then it looks too plain and boring. So that is always my "masculine" dilemma! For this card I used a little distressing, jute twine and chocolate cardstock and even though I used a scallop border I feel it still looks boyish. So I'm thinking that masculine cards can be accomplished if you throw in some "girly" things only if it's in very limited amounts.
