Masculine Case - QUESTION

Here is a question for any of you who read my blog, if there are any of you?

What is your most versatile stamp set? Read details below:

I had to make a quick masculine card for a family friend who is going through a medical ordeal. I admit that I have a hard time with masculine cards. I don't think I am very forward thinking when purchasing my stamps sets making sure that my sets are versatile for all occasions. For example I have a lot of masculine stamps that work for Father's Day and birthdays, but aren't appropriate for the occasion I mentioned above.

I think I am going to have to work on that, making sure my future stamp purchases are more versatile. I like SU's - Lovely as a Tree. It can work for masculine, feminine and pretty much any special occasion as well as for Sympathy or Get Well. That's the kind of stamp sets I have to be better at picking up.

Here is the card, I basically cased.

Stamp: Rubber Stamped - Monkey Paw Fern, Studio G Clear stamp sentiment
Paper: scraps
Ink: Color Box - Copper

Your card above is lovely and perfect for any gender!!! I agree about Lovely as a Tree -- so usable for many occasions. I also find that nature type images work for both sexes -- ferns, leaves -- you can pretty them up or make them quite masculine. Also pine boughs and pinecones are some of my favorites, which work well for Christmas and for masuline cards. Not sure if this helps, but I tried -- LOL!!!
