Modern Gray Flannel

Stampin up celebrate everything circle scissor plus

Crisp and clean are the ingredients for any masculine card.  This bold birthday card is for my nephew, celebrating his 35th birthday.  Click here for more of my masculine samples.

"Celebrate" (from Stampin' Up!'s Celebrate Everything) is inked in Basic Gray and stamped on Whisper White.  A striking contrast occurs when it's mixed with Pumpkin Pie and Basic Gray.  And how about those jazzy Jumbo Brads?  Boing!

Circle scissor plus

I got to use my Circle Scissor Plus to create the 4.25 Whisper White Circle.  It really makes the card come alive as a background accent.  Here's a link to helpful tips I posted previously about the Circle Scissor Plus. 

TIP:  For a perfect edge, attach the circle to your card and crop the entire side.  The Basic Gray patterned paper is from Stampin' Up!'s Hostess Level 1 Patterns Pack II.  The rich texture of the Basic Gray Textured card stock at the bottom makes a handsome finish.

ENVELOPE TIP:  Another Basic Gray pattern was layered over the flap of a Whisper White Medium Envelope. Be sure to glue the flap (not the paper) first and keep the adhesive close to the edges to avoid a gap.  Line the designer paper up with the envelope crease and adhere.  Simply flip the envelope over and snip away the excess.
