A Passion For Papertrey Challenge – One For The Boys.

Okay, so this is WAYYYYY late going up but we’ve been off caravanning again and I just haven’t had a second to stop and blog!!  So here it is, our newest APFP challenge which is to create a card for one of those men in your life.   My nephew recently had his 4th birthday and this is the card I made for him.


Stamps – Masculine Motifs (the stars), Big Birthday Wishes, Framed.
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Terracotta Tile, Summer Sunrise.
Cardstock: Hawaiian Shore, Summer Sunrise, Terracotta Tile.
Other: Stars die collection, By The Numbers Die Collection Glossy accents.

To be fair I think it could be for a girl or a boy so not sure if I’m not exactly sticking to the brief of a “male card”! (Hey, if Aimes got away with her “Sky’s the Limit” card last time – I think I’m ok with this one!! – wink!!). I stamped the square frame from Framed and then found a pen (which matched perfectly!!) and filled in the gap – I couldn’t make the gap work!! I then made a mask for the centre so I could randomly stamp the stars from Masculine Motifs around the outside. Although it can’t really be seen in the photo the “4” is thick with glossy accents which makes it pop right off the card – shame you can’t see it!!

Hope you get a chance to play with us over at A Passion For Papertrey and share your fabby creations with us.

  1. I love unisex cards!! I make them all the time! So so so handy to keep in a draw ready for a birthday you forgot … I tend to forget a lot of birthdays considering I am a card maker!!

    I really like how bold this card is :o) Bright colours and shapes that work really well together

  2. Loved your card, Caryn! The doubled four is just perfect!! So much better than a single one, which would look more flat! Love the stars!!! Great card!
