A CAS Masculine Birthday Card

I was intrigued by LeAnne’s challenge over at The Paper Players this week:

This sounded hard to me — not because it’s CAS, but because it’s masculine.  The only thing harder would be lots of layers and masculine.  Whenever I need to make a masculine card, I default to CAS.

Masculine Star Birthday


I went with a guy-friendly color palette — orange, blue, and gray.  And I forced myself to not use any ribbon nor buttons.  But I still added some fun embellishments with the candy dots and cute clips.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Off the Grid, Simply Stars, Four You
Ink:  Versamark, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate
Paper:  Smoky Slate, Brights DSP stack, Whisper White
Embellishments:  Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Neutrals Candy Dots, Hung Up Cute Clips, Witches’ Brew Designer Washi Tape

  1. Awesome masculine card! I have this set of stars and haven’t even used it yet! Your candy dots and fun clip are perfect “embellishments” for a guy’s card! Thanks for using my PP challenge this week! Love it!

  2. Love your card, Amy ! I can’t tell from the picture where you used the clear embossing powder – could it be the sentiment or maybe the Off the grid stamp ?

  3. Amy – I love this card. I really like where you placed all the product and the color choice is perfect for a masculine card. You are one of my favorite demonstrators to follow – thank you for all the great ideas!

  4. I love this card! I have the Simply Stars stamp set and haven’t used it yet because I don’t want to fussy cut the stars and SU doesn’t have a star punch anymore. What did you use for your stars?

  5. Amy, I am such a fan of your work!! Your card designs are just my style and when I came across this one you didn’t disappoint! I tweaked your design a bit to make it work for my card night last week and wanted you to know I was linking back to your card from my blog post (it will go live in the morning!) Thanks for the inspiration!
