Case'd Masculine Card

My Dad turns 82 this week and I needed a card for his birthday, so was searching through some blogs to get some ideas and came across the very talented Jayne Mercer.  Her masculine cards are great, and being in a bit of a rush this weekend decided to case one of them for Dad's birthday (you'll find her card here).  I also added the same design onto a carry bag in Kraft.

Stamps - Circle Circus Stamp, Best Yet Hostess Set
Ink - Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss
Paper - Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Urban Garden DSP
Accessories - Kraft Carry Bag (non SU)

I loved the result and decided to see what it would look like in more feminine colours.  I think it still needs something, maybe a ribbon to finish it off, but overall I think it works.

Happy Birthday Dad


  1. Great job! I love that you did the carry bag to match. I guess you chose Circles Circus in your starter kit - LOL

  2. Great cards Alison. Just love the matching bag.
    PS Sat up late trying to master the crochet flowers...finally managed a near perfect specimen sometime after midnight!!!
