Party Punch Masculine Card


I always struggle with masculine cards... hope the ribbon doesn't make it too girly.

This layout was inspired by a card on page 131 of the Stampin'Up! Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog. I just love all the samples in the new catalog... I think they are better than any year.

My first time using the new In Color, River Rock. I've seen some amazing cards with it and I was happy to crack open that pack. The Designer paper is from the Holiday Mini called Holiday Harmony Double Sided Paper. It's a two inch strip sewn on the River Rock. I ran the one end through the Cuttlebug with this embossing folder. The Party Punch stamp is stamped on River Rock card stock and punched out with the Designer Label Punch. Then, stamped again onto the Designer paper and the center punched out with the 3/4 inch Circle Punch. It's backed with another Designer Label punched out of Basic Black card stock then layered on top of a piece of Purely Pomegranate circle of card stock punched out with the 1 3/8 Circle punch.

Here's the Recipe:

Stamps: Party Punch
Paper: River Rock, Always Artichoke, Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Holiday Harmony DS paper.
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Designer Label Punch, 3/4 inch Punch, 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Pomegranate Stitched Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Traffic Jam Embossing Folder, Vintage Brads, Crafter's Tool Kit.

My kids start school tomorrow!!! I'm going to miss them, but they are ready to go back and I'm ready for some free time. Sleeping in a bit is over... back to the Fall schedule. Averie is so excited she can hardly stand it. I will take her to school (she starts afternoon Kindergarten) and she'll ride the bus home. I'm nervous about that, but she insisted that she get to ride the bus home. Oh boy... everyone in school.. I can hardly believe it.

Have a great week everyone! Thanks for stopping by!!

Awesome card, colors, and work!!

If I have to put ribbon on a masculine card I don't use any ties or bows, I just wrap it around a mat of paper and glue it down where ever it needs to be. HTH & TFS.

It's so fun to come over here and see what you've been up to! I love the colors in this paper. The Pomegranate is so rich and beautiful. I like this card for a guy. Somehow the stitched ribbon doesn't look too girly on this. All your stuff is super duper, Cami!
