Welcome to the "Young Crafters Unite! Masculine Cards Blog Hop!" You should be arriving here from Kristy's blog. If you're just stumbling upon the blog hop, I'd encourage you to check out Young Crafters Unite and start from the beginning. There are some fabulous prizes to be won from the hop sponsors, Simon Says Stamp and Paper Smooches!
This card is based on the latest card sketch from Sketch Support. I modified it by switching out the flowers with the circle, airplane, and star, and I skipped the stitching. Also, I trimmed my papers to a single point instead of the double-point on the sketch.
I chose my papers and embellishments because they were masculine but still fun. I immediately turned to the Paper Moon kit from Studio Calico because it was my favorite kit this year for masculine pages. It's literally in pieces -- there are no full sheets left in the kit. It's always sad to see the end of a kit, but I'm happy because it means I've got the challenge of turning the remaining bits into cards!
The card is intended for our friend Justin, who turns 30 this weekend. He's a pilot, hence the little airplane! He and his wife went to college with Trevor, and Justin ended up being hired at Trevor's airline a month after Trevor. Justin and Jennifer ended up living in the same little Atlanta suburb as us, so we've grown to be good friends with the two of them over the past year. I've got one more little project planned for Justin's birthday, but since it isn't ready yet, I'll probably be sharing that tomorrow. Be sure to check back then -- I promise it will blow you away! ;)
Here's links to a few more masculine cards I've done:
