CAS(E) this Sketch - Challenge #3



In the nick of time for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #3.  I know that everyone finds creating cards for men to be a big challenge.  I created what I hope is a masculine card by selecting papers and stamps that are suited to a man.  The yellow chevrons and the green star on a kraft base seems to work for me.  This card could totally be made into a more feminine card by changing the ink used for the birthday tag.





All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Kraft
Patterned paper:  Fine linen Paper Pack (PTI), Hello Sunshine (Echo Park)
Stamps: Birthday tags 2012, Birthday Basics
Ink:  New Leaf, True Black
Dies: Limitless Layers 1 3/4"
other: foam tape

Every time I see this layout, I like it more and more. Your card is perfect for a man, and could work for a woman, as well--no changed needed.

What a great idea for a masculine card...I HATE making them! The color choice was wonderful and I love the chevron paper for a man!
