Pinterest Inspired


This was a runner-up for use for my nephew's birthday last week. I went ultra-CAS for this, using this photo from my Inspiration Board on Pinterest as a starting point:

brand tape

The toughest part was getting that black layer under the sentiment strip as even as possible - it's very narrow and there wasn't much margin for error! (I felt it was needed to provide some definition, even though there isn't one in the inspiration photo.)

It never hurts to have a few masculine cards on hand - sometimes they're hard to make! (And I have 3 more nephews who have birthdays coming up!)

Nice cas card! I like the simple but effective design. Gives me a great idea for a "special" thank you card I need. :)

Great CAS card and perfect for a male.

Ooh, I like this, Ardyth! I like the kraft layer, it lets the sentiment banner really stand out.

Absolutely PERFECT! I never have a masculine card when I need one and then struggle to make one that's just right in a timely manner! :)

I'm going to have to look at your inspiration board more often...lots of great stuff on there!!!

Another WOW creation! I agree with Melissa...this is the perfect guy card! The kraft cardstock really gives the card as mascualine feel (something about guys andearthy colors). The black border IS perfect! Great card!

This super-CAS creation is awesome! And I agree, it's always handy to have a few masculine cards on hand.
