I don't know why, but summertime seems to be the time of year when I need masculine cards the most, and I never seem to have enought on hand.
This first card is a two-pocket birthday card but it would also make a wonderful graduation, retirement or congratulations card for a boy/man.
An 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of designer series paper is used for the base. To make the card you simply fold the DSP in half, then open and fold in half in the other direction.
Once the folds are completed then the front and inside of the card can be decorated with whatever embellishments you want to jazz up the card with to make it occasion appropriate. Nothing could be easier.
For the inside pocket I made a simple pull-out tag for addingby layering Whisper White on Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the beautiful sailing ship from the set The Open Sea with the new Midnight Muse In Colour and the Happy Birthday sentiment in Cherry Cobbler. I also stamped the anchor from the On the Sea set on Whisper White and cut it out with the Oval Scallop Punch. It was adhered on the left side of the card with dimensionals.
I used "Comfort Cafe" DSP #126898 for the DSP and Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit cardstock. Images from the Open Sea stamp set are inked with Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse inks.
|Made with Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Real Red. Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. Basic Black ink and Versamark were used to emboss the images and sentiments|
