Kim has come up with a great sketch, at Just Add Ink this week.

The season of 21st birthdays has begun in earnest for us.  My eldest son and many of his friends turn 21 in the coming months; our calendars are booking up fast, up 'til Christmas!  I used Kim's sketch to make a card for a special young man whose birthday we celebrated last week.

I love that the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Papers are ideal for masculine cards, as well as for Christmas.  The classic colour combination of Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black really appeals to me.  I paper-pieced the flagged ends of the sentiment banner, using small pieces of the tartan paper used for the big banner.

Listed below are all the Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card.  If you would like to buy the products for yourself, just click on one of the thumbnail images, and you'll be taken direct to my online store.

Make sure you check out the rest of the gorgeous creations of the Just Add Ink Design Team.  We would love it if you created a card or scrapbook page, and linked it up on our challenge page, too!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

  1. Hi Christine. Love the colour combo, that is just so good for male cards, they are the hardest to do, great job. Cheers Anna.

  2. I had to come visit the person kind enough to take time to encourage me about my card... you are not only kind. You do great work. I have enjoyed browsing your blog.

  3. Great card Christine!

  4. Very masculine and also very celebratory Christine! Love the starry background and how you amped up the colour with the red tartan. xxx

  5. Such a great masculine colour combo Christine! I love how you've combined the tartan with the stars and the touch of burlap too. Lovely textures together! xx

  6. Another fab guy creation Christine. That background is so effective. xx
