Modern & Masculine Birthday Card

Stampin Up That Thing You Did Masculine Birthday Card & Envelope By Mary Fish StampinUpToday’s modern & masculine birthday card is defined by two key elements . . . blocks of bold color and lots of “architecture!”

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge MOJO441

I used this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO441) as my guide but I’m not afraid to go a little outside the box and use a larger circle!


  • Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White Card Stock is the perfect “heft” for the 5″ square card base.

  • Since you LOVE measurements . . . the Watermelon Wonder circle was cropped with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.  The Rich Razzleberry rectangle measures 1 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ and the Old Olive rectangle measures 2 5/8″ x 3 1/2″.
  • Create architecture!  I used lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals to give a 3-D effect to the Old Olive rectangle, Watermelon Wonder circle and sentiment, each stacked higher than the previous layer.

  • Love it!  The yummy stripe for the envelope is from the Stampin’ Up! 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper.  It’s the perfect weight for creating a custom sized envelope for my 5″ square card using the Envelope Punch Board (a “must have”).
