Here's a really old Father's Day card I really like. I find the seaside set a very reasonable set to use for masculine cards. To created the striped background paper, I took three different colors of the same patterned paper and cut them into strips. By mixing up the width & the order of the paper, I made my own multi coloured background paper.
