Masculine Birthday - Stripes

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I love making feminine/flowery cards, so when I have to make a masculine card it can sometimes be a challenge for me. I feel like there is a limited amount of manly colors (and stamps) to choose from! I used basic stamping on this card. The paper piercer tool was used to add a little bit of detail around the present. I also added a touch of color to the present with the Mint Spica Marker. Enjoy!

Stamps: Stampin' Up - Year After Year (present), Eat Cake (happy birthday)
Cardstock: Stampin' Up - Kraft, Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow. DCWV - Brown.
Patterned Paper: Cloud9Design - Travel Stripe
Ink: Stampin' Up - Chocolate Chip craft ink
Other: Stampin' Up Twill Tape, Paper Piercer, Spica Marker - Mint
