Quick and easy masculine cards

If you are like me, you may find it more difficult to make a card for a man than for a woman.  I don't care which age group this man belongs to, or whatever card I'm making for him, I know for a fact that this card is going to take me much longer than the same type of card for a woman in the same age group.

The nautical themed collection Regatta from Close to my Heart helped me make two quick and easy masculine cards.  They are simple yet perfect for a masculine card.

I've used the cut apart sheet of Regatta patterned paper on both cards:

The greeting "today is a good day" comes from the stamp set "All the Details".  They turned out pretty nice.  :)

I said the projects I've made with the Regatta collection have nothing to do with sea, beach or vacation. Today's cards are examples of how I've used it.

My card is entering the following:
Cute Card Thursday - Just Boys
Creative Knockouts - Embossed delight
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes
Craft Rocket Challenges - Clean and Simple
