One more masculine card with Open Sea

The Open Sea” is one of the first stamp set that I bought! It’s been around for quite a while!!! But it’s such a nice and classic set, if you don’t own it, you’ll want it for sure! Over the years, I made many masculine cards with this set. Here’s one that we made at my last class. I like this old parchment look! Simply use Very Vanilla cards stock, tear some bits around the edges and ink with Crumb cake.

I used Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla for the colors.

Traveler Flip Card for Father’s Day

Traveler” stamp set is a perfect set for masculine cards! I used the train from this set to make this Father’s Day card. I also used “World Map” background stamp for the side panel. To “aged” the paper, I sponged Crumb Cake ink with a sponge dauber around the edges.

This card was created with the Cicle Card Thinlits which cuts and scores the card for you to create this fun flip card!

Father’s Day card “Shirt and Suit”

I have a great Father’s Day card for you today! It’s simple enough that even children could do it!


Here’s the tip for the shirt. If you fold the upper left corner to create the shirt collar, the pattern on the back of the designer paper is not the same. So here’s how I did it: I cut the lower right corner and glued it at the back of the collar. Then fold to make the collar and add 3 small buttons. (Glue dots work best!) Adhere on your card base.

For the suit, cut a piece 3-5/8″ x 5-1/2″ of Island Indigo card stock. Fold the upper left corner to make the suit collar. Add another little triangle to finish the collar. Add a pocket and some seam lines made with a Island Indigo marker. What’s fun is that you can hide a little message in the pocket!
