Leafy Masculine Birthday - Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves

   I had a quick break in my afternoon so I thought I would post a card while I had a moment.  I saw the challenge over at Cardz 4 Guys which is to use leaves on a masculine card and I as my birthday card stash is down to 2 cards I figured I better join in!

  I had saved this color palette a while back on Pinterest before some of these colors were even released by Stampin' Up! so clearly I had a need for some of them!  I thought they were perfect for the leaf theme as well as for a guy card.  

  This one is very straightforward with the cork paper being the star of the show I think.  It's just such a lovely background and really sets off the colors so well.  I hope you've been able to get your hands on some.  I'm down to scraps and hope that this is a product that finds it way into the next annual catalog as I love it so much and want to continue to be able to order it!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Thank you for the inspiration this evening! I was set to make some masculine birthday cards and went with the same design to create 4 using leaves. Of course they are pretty clean & simple but perfect for a guy.

    Love what you did with yours, the die cuts are perfect addition.
