Growing In Unity Week - Tuesday

Hi!

My second project for my week as the Growing In Unity gal is this fun masculine birthday card I made for a male friend.


Masculine cards are often difficult to make but these stamps from one of Unity Stamp Company's Kit of the Month kits have saved the day more than once! I went with a clean & simple design on kraft cardstock to let the stamped images take centre stage. 

Have a great day!

I've used those stamped images many times myself for masculine cards. Love the paper you chose (banner shape) behind the stamps. Brilliant!

I also have trouble when it comes to creating masculine cards, and I must say your card creation just had me smiling out loud! Plus I'm a HUGE fan of clean and simple! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

The dotted lines look good around the flaggy thingee. The sentiment is a cute way of saying--hey, you sure are getting old (ha ha ha). I really like everything about your card.
