Seize the Birthday Challenge

So one of the things I enjoy doing is making cards, it is super relaxing.  Friends of mine came over on the weekend and helped me out with organizing my craft room so I can now start participating in card challenges (special thanks to OttawaMom and Hayley's Paper Garden - check out their blogs, these are super talented ladies!!).

The first challenge I decided to participate in was Seize the Birthday as my Grandfather will be turning 80 in just a few days.

As the challenge for this week was "Anything Goes" - I decided to use the sketch from "Seize the Sketch" but missed the deadline for that challenge.

I always find it super difficult to create masculine cards but here is my attempt and I wanted it to be super simple as my Grandfather does not like anything over the top.

Tools used:

Paper: Crumb Cake (textured), Very Vanilla, Print Poetry DSP (Retired)
Stamp Set: Happy You (Retired)
Colours: Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red
Punch: Circle 1 3/4"
Other: Linen thread, Neutral Brads (Retired), Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Welcome to the blogging world Steph! Perfect blog name! Print poetry is one of my favourite DSP's and perfect for a masculine card - love the added linen thread! Your grandfather is going to love it!
