The dreaded 'man' cards and some pennants to download!!

I have a few "male" birthday cards here for today's post. Keeping the theme to transport cameras or a mixture of type and lettering. Modern and simple.
A couple of map cards on this photo too, as well as a couple of blue themed ladies cards! Equality!
Love this one 

that was inspired by this one here in the Studio Calico gallery - thanks Leah, simple and gorgeous!
Head over to the Studio Calico gallery if you want to be inspired!
I then branched out into another banner on here, using printable 'mini flags' from scrap 365 magazine downloads here. (check out the bingo cards and speech bubbles whilst you are there! Handy to have!) 
I printed them out on presentation paper which is 120gsm or 160 gsm. I used half of them on this card, with the words added in my own handwriting at the bottom - "put the flags out!" I literally folded the individual flags over some twine and glued them with a glue stick and cut the v shape in the bottom afterwards. Anchor your twine by tying around brads or by punching two holes in the front of the card with a small eyelet punch and then tying on the inside. You could make a banner of football colours for a male card, with mini team numbers on! Hope these have inspired you to get cracking, no excuses!

Getting carried away now - Christmas pennants, new baby pennants, good luck pennants!!!

Hi Caroline
I absolutely love your cards, and agree that mens cards are always difficult. You however, seem to have come up with some really different ideas here, which I love! and adore all the bunting, I have real love of bunting at the moment :)
Looking forward to seeing more.

Loving your mens cards. They are much harder for some reason.
