I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother-in-law. He's a "no frills" kind of guy. Therefore, I kept his birthday card colors neutral and the lines clean. Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper adds such a sophisticated look! Click and scroll to view other Stampin' Pretty Masculine Card Ideas.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- I cut Mocha Morning DSP to four 1" wide strips and layered.
- Perfectly Penned rubber stamps offer four versatile sentiments. The font is classy without being frilly. See images below.
- Mastering the "flagged" end is as easy as grabbing my Stampin' Up! Square Punch. Watch my video tutorial to learn how to Use a Square Punch to Create a Flagged End.
- This handsome stripe pattern adds a coordinating finish to the envelope flap. I adhered the stripe to the flap and used my Paper Snips to remove the excess!
