It’s Monday morning and a full day ahead… what are your plans? I’ve a bit of computer work today, card making :o), gardening :O) and more, but first, I want to share this masculine birthday card. Part of what makes it masculine is the colors, another is its simplicity and non-fussiness.
I began with retiring Sahara Sand card stock to make this A2 top fold card. Does it seem that I’m trying to use my stash in preparation for all the new? Well – you are sooooo right! I have gotten stuck however, using what’s on my desk. :O( Nonetheless… here’s the card.
As I mentioned, Sahara Sand for the card base. Starting from the front:
- By the Bay DSP cut 2 7/8 x 3 7/8
- Layer this to Basic White 3 x 4
- Adhere both to a coordinating By the Bay DSP 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
- And Balmy Blue 4 x 5 1/4.
- Wrap with a length of Burlap Ribbon from the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack (carrying over!). Adhere ribbon in back with Stampin’ Seal
- Adhere all this to the card base with dimensionals
- Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White scrap. This sentiment comes from Waves of Inspiration stamp set – carrying over!
- Die cut sentiment with Waves Dies, carrying over… and adhere over the ribbon with dimensionals
- Add three Enamel Dot Essentials in Crumb Cake and the front is complete
For the inside… adhere a Basic White 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 to a Balmy Blue piece 4 x 5 1/4. Adhere a strip of By the Bay DSP to the bottom and attach all this to the inside of the card.
The envelope… super simple… a coordinating piece of By the Bay DSP for the envelope flap and this masculine card is ready to be sent.
Here’s the exciting part about the products used for this card… The Waves of Inspiration stamp set and its coordinating Waves Dies are carrying over… just not as a bundle. The Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack is also carrying over. Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Basic White card stock are also carrying over, as are the Balmy Blue ink and Night of Navy inks. :O) What is not carrying over into the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog is the By the Bay Designer Series Paper and the Enamel Dot Essentials or the Sahara Sand card stock. Prices are changing in the new catalog… production costs have risen as everything else has risen (such as food costs, clothing costs, gasoline, etc.) If you have a chance, check out getting these carry-over items now before the price increases with the new catalog. You may do that order from me here.
When you place an order of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you receive from me a SU! item valued up to $10 + Star-Studded Rewards. If your order exceeds $150, do not use my HOST CODE as SU! has it’s own rewards from which you may choose. You will still receive that FREE ITEM from me up to $10 + the Star-Studded Rewards. And if your order is $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials. BONUS! :O)
So MANY exciting new colors in the 2023-2024 Annual catalog. If you were a customer of mine this past year and placed an order over $50, you should be receiving your catalog – they have been mailed! And having said that, I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. Join the fun!! I’ll place the share order early on May 2 and use the expedited shipping option and should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of May 8.
