Beautiful cards that are filled with colors and fun patterns can still be perfect for men. Even with all of its intricate patterns and bold colors (and a heavy dose of Poppy Parade), today’s card is a perfect “happy birthday” card for the man in your life. Here’s my card with a fun sketch from Chrissy Larson for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge:
Here’s the banner for the super-fun challenge that inspired my card:
- Make a Wish! There are many word dies in Stampin’ Up!’s current offerings, but there’s something really special about the beautifully scripted, rounded letters of “Wish” in the Broadway Lights Dies. These dies are incredible! While they pair beautifully with the Broadway Birthday stamp set (I used the stamp set for “make a”), there are some really great standalone dies in this set, too! Here’s a look at the Broadway Lights Dies: The gorgeous, colorful pattern that pops out on this card front is one of the beautiful pages in the Country Club Designer Series Paper. Many of these pages are perfect for the man in your life who loves to golf, but many of the pages are just as perfect for anyone. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Country Club Designer Series Paper:
- You’re a Star. While there’s a dot for the “i” in the “Wish” die, I added a special touch by cropping out the largest star with the Twinkle Builder punch. It’s a little accent that makes a big difference. Here’s a closer look at how “Make a Wish” plays against the three panels of paper on this card:
- Color Combination. Without the greens, yellows and gray in the panel of Country Club Designer Series Paper, I would think this color combination is a perfect patriotic one. With those colors, though, the colors don’t read as patriotic. Do you agree? If you like this mix of Pool Party, Night of Navy and Poppy Parade, please save this for future reference:
