Poppystamps Challenge: For the Boys
by Jennifer Svare


Hello!  Are you playing along with the challenge this month?  One random winner will be chosen from all entries, and entering is easy!  The theme is Masculine, and more details can be found here!  


For my card, I chose three shades of blue for the base colors.  I made small strips of the medium and light, and glued them to lightweight cardstock.  Next, I die cut the large sailboat from the Marina Sailboats set, and that created a perfectly striped sailboat.  


I die cut the Scribble Circle Collage out of the dark blue background, and used distress oxides to create a sunset (or sunrise) onto a white background that is glued behind it.   



This is going to be my brother's birthday card, so I used the Scribble Happy Birthday for the greeting inside.  

Super simple card, and really fast to make!  I could see this same overall design being used with the flamingo, or any other die used as a silhouette.  So many colors and designs could be used...   Be sure to check out the video below for more details on how this card was created.


I can't wait to see all the challenge cards this month - lots of great ideas out there, and we would love to see yours next!

That’s a fantastic design, love it!

I love how you made your own "cardstock" for the sailboat, which is a great way to use scraps of cardstock that I hoard! Your sunset scene inspired me in my submission to the challenge. Thanks for making a video, love seeing your crafting in action!

So pretty!! When I first looked at your card, I thought, "Ooh, another "happy birthday" that I "must" have!" Then I realized that I already own it! LOL!

This card is awesome and stunning!

Hi Jennifer, This is a fabulous guys card, I love it.

Stunning card! I have this set of Marine Sailboats, but I'll be adding the Scribble Circle Collage die to my wish list!!

Love this!!! The stripes are perfect.

Wow! Beautiful scene! Sailboat is so cute and the color background simply amazing!!!

Wonderful card design. Thanks for the instructions on hos to achieve this great look!

Love this card. Lots of guys in my family so I'm always on the lookout for great masculine cards and this one certainly fits the bill. Wasn't sure about the scribble circle die until I saw your card. It made the perfect background and will not be going on my must have list.

Love when the card has a video showing how it was done. Great background.

The perfect guy card!
