Here are a couple of masculine Birthday Cards. The stamps are from Tim Holtz Curiosities Stamp Set. The paper is from a Jillibean Soup stack, Spotted Owl, that my sister, *Hi Pat!* gave me. She had used a lot of it in a class she took. I got several sheets and a LOT of scraps. I have made a LOT of cards with those scraps. This yellow/brown paper, to me, looks masculine. The card bases are 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock. The top one is just a piece of the patterned scrap that I layered on top of a brown 4x5 3/8 panel. I took yellow carsdtock & cut it with PTI Tag Sale #4 die. That was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink & one of the Tim Holtz stamps. The same yellow paper was stamped with the ruler stamp. I used cream cardstock to stamp the clock & ad stamp. The second card uses brown cardstock cut with PTI Edger #3. I trimmed off the right edge, flattening the curve. I was just looking for something a little different. PTI Spiral Notebook die was used to cut yellow cardstock. It was stamped with the same Tim Holtz stamp. The other elements were all stamped on yellow cardstock on this one. Most of the elements are mounted on pop dots on both cards.
This stamp set just screams masculine to me, that is why I bought it. I have been showing a lot of cards where I use scraps. I have some more of the red Jillibean Soup scrap cards I will post, soon. I LOVE that paper!
