Card Ideas For Men 
Pop-Up Cards
These cards are a good idea to make for a birthday or a wedding anniversary.
How To Make It 
  • Cut a colored card into a rectangular shape.
  • Mark off the card in the middle and fold it in half.
  • With a pencil, mark two points on either side of the midpoint. Make small cuts and form a flap by pulling the cut portion inside the card.
  • Create a picture or a drawing, which you intend, should pop up when the person opens the card.
  • Stick the pop-up image on the lower portion of the flap. 
Embroidered Cards
These cards could be one of the best ideas you could come up with when making a card for a man.
How To Make It 
  • Get a sewing needle, embroidery floss and a heavy card stock.
  • Fold the card stock towards the back, and make holes a little distance away from the outline of the fold.
  • Thread the needle with the embroidery floss and begin threading the holes that you have made on the card in such a way that there is a loop created on the paper similar to a backstitch.
  • Switch colors as needed. Once you have finished, do not clip the thread. Rather, let it hang from the sides like tassels.
