Stampin up stampinup pretty order online lacy and lovely masculine card idea circle punch
Crisp, masculine and on it’s way to my 30-something nephew!  My starting point?  This week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO288).

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR!  I enjoy reading your comments so much.  If you have a moment, please leave me a quick comment at the end of this post about today’s project and Mojo Monday design.


  • When starting with a sketch, feel free to use a little “artistic discretion.”  I played with the sizes and layering of the banners.

  • The sentiment was moved within one of the banners, with the assistance of the Stampin’ Up! Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and coordinating “Happy Birthday” from Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.
  • Punch it up!  I love the look of Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder against Night of Navy card stock.

Lacy & Lovely stampin up stampinup card ideas and


  1. I love the use of the doily stamp with the embossing powder. It really makes the card pop!!

  2. I always love your clean and bold style and this is a fabulous masculine card!

  3. Wonderful, Mary! Love the bold colors and your take on the sketch!

  4. I like how you think outside the box. I would not have equated the Lacy & Lovely set to a masculine card, but with the bold color contrast, it totally works! Great job, Mary.

  5. What a gorgeous, scrumptious, delicious color combination!

  6. Mary, would never have thought of using this great combination of colors. Glad you’ve chosen a masculine card! I’m always wondering what to do when I have to make a card for male friends and family members! I love the “clean cut” look. Thanks once again!

  7. WOW – what an amazing card. It really has punch – I love it. It took me a bit to work out that it was embossed straight onto the NoN – very effective. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with the world.

  8. Helen M. Scahdegg

    As always, an inspiration. You are the Queen when it comes to masculine cards, Mary! I love your color combo this time…rich, masuline, yet bright! Thanks for sharing.

  9. I like how you put the banners together and the colors you used.

  10. Mary,
    Love the card, especially the embossing and color choices.
    I’m wondering what it would look like with something more masculine in the center? I keep looking at it thinking the small shiny brad just doesn’t do it justice but can’t think of what else would work?
    Something rugged or would that clash with the embossing?
    I may have too much time on my hands today if I’m doing all this thinking! LOL

    Thanks for sharing, Brenda

  11. waaaaw this is so gorgeous Mary. Such pretty colours. hugs! Mojca

  14. Love how you used Lacy & Lovely for a masculine card! The embossing is stunning!

  15. Dicta Schoenfelder

    Love the colors. What a great masculine card.

  16. Thanks for this wonderful feedback. i like orange (or shades of orange) with just about any blue (light to navy). it’s amazing how true to color the tangerine tango embossing remains on the navy!

  17. Love the bold colors with the delicate doily.

  18. How bold and beautiful! I love your interpretation of the sketch!
