I don't think I've shared the good news here - my daughter got engaged this Christmas. We are very happy for them. They're looking down the road to 2020 for a wedding date. And.... today is his birthday.
I'm not that great with masculine cards so I asked Rachel for suggestions and she reminded me that he is a Dallas Cowboys fan. Hmmm, silver and blue and stars, right?
I found the black dsp with silver x's in my stash and searched around for some silver paper that was not too blingy and came up with this that looks like hammered aluminum. The sentiment is also a brushed silver. So it's definitely got a metallic thing going on, but not in a feminine way. It's a 5 x 7 card so I had to search around for a suitable envelope - guess that will be on my list for purchases next time I hit the craft store.
