Pals Paper Arts KISS Challenge

Stampin up growing green pals paper arts masculine card

This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA54) is right up my alley.  KISS means I get to create a "Keep It Simple Sweetie" card.  For the masculine twist, simplicity falls into line perfectly.  Here are my secret ingredients to making a masculine card! 

Check out what the Pals Paper Arts Design Team drummed up for this week's challenge!

  • Stampin up growing green crumb cake envelope Did you miss it?  The Woodland Walk Designer Series Paper escaped my devouring eye the first time I raced through the new catalog.  However, after about my third trip through, the gorgeous "organic" patterns grabbed my attention.
  • I tucked some of the Woodland Walk paper in the envelope for a polished finish.  Click for my Video Tutorial on Lining Envelopes.  Very easy.
  • Is there any color  that Crumb Cake doesn't look great with?  Very earthy with this paper and color palette.
  • Layering the sentiment (A Word for You stamp set) over the oval really "punches" things up!

  1. Love this Mary…that paper is awesome. That stamped image looks perfect on the Crumb Cake paper…I was wondering how to use this set! Thanks for the inspiration.
