A Page From My Own Book, Part 2

I had another masculine birthday card to make up this month...and you know I've written before how masculine cards don't come as easily to me as the shabby, floral, feminine ones I make more of.  So I copied one of my own designs again, by using the same digi collage I'd used for a Father's Day card earlier this year (thankfully, two different recipients...LOL), and switching up the colors and patterned papers.

I picked up on one of the digi papers I used in the collage, and duplicated it for the background of the card...it gave a whole new "feel" to the digi collage at the center of the card...

The sentiment stamps are a combo of two different sentiments in the same set from Papertrey Ink...I was happy to find I had the same fonts on my hard drive, so I could duplicate the fonts from the stamps on the computer-printed verse inside the card. :) 

Patterned papers: K&Co Maison collection (dot); Graphic 45/Communique collection (black diamond)
Green pearls: Queen & Co    Miscellaneous: corrugated cardboard, burlap, twine, button
Digital collage elements: Free Vintage Digi Stamps: grungy polka dot paper, bird, auto;
The Graphics Fairy: crown, olive branches, vintage label;
Vintage Feedsacks: berry floral

And here's the Father's Day card I CASE'd, from a post back in June - by changing the size of the digi collage and the colors of the papers, I think I got a very different look, even though the design of the card was the same...

Thanks for visiting...I hope your week is going well!


  1. Good for you to CASE your own card. Why recreate the wheel when you've already got a great one?! I love how you found the font and carried it through - fantastic!

  2. Another great card...I think you have aced these masculine cards.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment - I appreciate it!
