Masculine cards can be a toughie. Gina has some excellent videos, ideas that can be used for men.
Click on her videos and search for woodgrain. She shows how to use plain cardstock, a bone folder (back of scissor, back of butter knife, anything kind of dull) and create lines of any width. Take an ink and either use direct to paper or sponging to highlight the "wood panels."
Perhaps you could use Theresa Momber's beautiful sponging technique to create ocean, sky or mountains and sky. Stamp a tree or several trees and hand draw some "w" shapes in the sky for birds. Use markers in an upstroke from the bottom for weeds or tall grasses.
Other manly man backgrounds are Gina's "Polished Stone" and "Joseph's Coat" technique videos. With Joseph's Coat you can use any solid leaf image,
Vellum is a hot trend. After you make your background, stamp any generic sentiment like "Get Well" etc and attach the vellum to the back of the layer :)
Hope this gives more ideas ♥ Cheers!
