Masculine Birthday: Celebrate You


Today's card is for the Late Night Stampers Challenge #72: Masculine Cards! Father's Day is coming up in June, so what better cards to be working on than for good ol' dad?? Sometimes, I hear many of my stampin' friends have a hard time making cards for guys, but if we keep them clean with hardware finishes and masculine colors, it's a snap!

When designing this card, I also wanted to feature another of my favorite colors that I will be saying a fond farewell to in the Color Renovation: Sage Shadow. I used it for the base of the card and the punched-star accents.

Have you ever tried out the Stampin' up! Crimper? This is an "oldie-but-goodie" tool I love to use for adding a little extra texture and "umph" to projects because it is so simple and easy to use, not to mention FAST! It just zips right through the crimper and in seconds I have beautifully textured cardstock. I used the crimper on the chocolate chip strip of cardstock.
