I went for a CAS masculine card for mine this week!  For some reason I never have enough masculine cards!


CCMC389 Sky is the Limit

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Gray cardstock, folded in half.
  • On top is a 3-3/4 x 5 piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, stamped with You Send Me Soaring in the upper right corner.
  • A 2-1/4 x 5-1/2 strip of Going Places Designer Paper is placed across the front.
  • A 1/4 x 5-1/2 strip of Silver Glimmer Paper was added at the bottom of the DSP.
  • The plane from Sky is the Limit is stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock and hand-cut.  It is placed on a 2-1/2 punched circle of Basic Black, and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See…very clean and simple design!  OK…make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team to see what they have done with the sketch challenge this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!

I agree about never having enough manly cards and you just can’t go wrong with that stamp set! The plane image is awesome. Love the little bit of glitter you snuck in there 🙂

I really like this card. I like the colors, the glimmer paper bling that is not too much. Really nice card. Thanks for sharing. Meg

Fabulous masculine card Connie! I love the touch of bling, it perfectly dresses up the card without taking away from the masculine feel.

This airplane is just perfect for a masculine card Connie – a definite keeper! Love the glimmer and patterned strip too for added interest.

I’m definitely going to have to CAS this one! I always run short ideas for masculine cards. Too cute!

When I made this week’s card, I knew it came out like last week’s sketch. Now I see it is almost like this card, too – maybe a subconscious CASE! Love your paper choices!
