Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Happy Birthday

Hello friends!

Welcome to our monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring projects from talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we share fun projects and various design styles. This month theme is Happy Birthday. You may have arrived from Sue Boerner’s blog. Her project is wonderful!

When it comes to birthday cards I struggle to make masculine cards. Maybe because I like embellishing with ribbon or maybe because I'm drawn to more feminine stamp sets. Whatever the reason, this is an area where my crafting mojo suffers.

I designed this card for my monthly stamp club. As I thought about what projects I wanted to share with them I knew I wanted to use the new In Colors (love them!) and I wanted a masculine card that could be used for either a birthday or Father's Day. I started with a card sketch but this card soon morph away from it but still met all my criteria.

Do you also struggle with masculine cards? I'd love to hear your tips and tricks when making masculine cards.

Without further ado, my card...featuring Cinnamon Cider cardstock, In Color 2020-21 designer series paper (DSP) with Cinnamon Cider and Misty Moonlight colors, and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the new A Grand Kid stamp set. I embossed the cardbase with the Subtle embossing folder and added a bit of linen thread.

Happy Birthday
This version uses a retired Father's Day sentiment.
