Masculine 50th BD

My hubby asked me to make a card for a co-worker who was turning 50.  It was really short notice so I quickly made a card.  Perfect timing too since Wee Memories is having a Masculine Challenge this week.


When in doubt on a masculine card I reach for striped patterned paper.  The 50 was a no-brainer since I had my wonderful number dies from Papertrey.  Love those things!  My other go-to for man cards is stars. 

So this is what I made:


I've had that patterned paper for years.  I was happy to cut into it and use some.  Why oh why do we buy so much of that stuff?





All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Big Birthday Wishes
Paper:  White, unknown pp
Ink:  black (memento)
Other:  number & star dies, tiny mosaic cuttlebug folder

This is a fantastic masculine card! I love how you used the striped paper for the numbers and stamped part of the sentiment right on the patterned paper. Great design!

The striped paper is great for a masculine card. I love the design with the numbers over that big star!

Love it! That bold pattern really works great with the white embossed star and all the negative space.

I love that you carried the pattern paper over to your numbers! Great design and great masculine card!

Looks great, Sara! I think so many of us find it hard to make a masculine card but I would have done the same as you - stars, striped paper, numbers... ;)

What a great design. It works perfectly with that paper (I also like stripes for guys), but it would also work for a gal, with different paper. Will be casing, since this is the big 50 year for all my friends! Thanks for the inspiration.
