Around the World Stampin’ Up! challenge #1 and a masculine 21st birthday card …

There are lots of fabulous new products in the latest seasonal catalogue from Stampin’ Up! and the sweater weather designer series paper is no exception.  The colours and patterns are not only good for autumnal cards and projects, but they are perfect for masculine cards too.

Our friend’s son, Owen, was celebrating his 21st birthday, so I got out some of my new crafting goodies to make him this card …

The little star, from the merry minis punch pack, came in handy for the little embellishments, and the good news is that the punches are still available to order, together with some other items on the carry-over list.

I was encouraged by my lovely friend, Jan, to join in the new Around the World Stampin’ Up! Challenge.  The very first AW-01 challenge theme is “celebrate”. Whilst my card may be a little understated, I hope it fits well with the theme. 


Here’s what I used to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: crumb cake, chocolate chip, very vanilla; stamp sets: morning meadow hostess set; inks: chocolate chip; punches: 2½” circle, star – merry minis punch pack; accessories: stampin’ dimensionals, sweater weather dsp, typeset alphabet bigz die, bigshot, paper snips.

Thanks for dropping by today
