It's been a while since I specifically designed a male birthday card. This is the second card for an upcoming class (see previous post!) and it took me a while for the ideas to come together. In the end I decided to use the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue for inspiration, and found a layout that I liked, so I adapted that for my purposes.
The colours are Sahara Sand, Vintage Violet, Mellow Moss and Cranberry Crisp. Vintage Violet and Cranberry Crisp will both be retiring at the end of March, so if you need to stock up on supplies of these or the other In Colours, make sure you do that soon! It's a good idea to make sure you have an ink refill for any of your In Colour inkpads, too.
I used some Hodgpodge Hardware and brads on the card, too, which gave it accents without feeling like I was using girly embellishments. I hope you like it!
