Paper Suite is my creative playground. In 2008, I started blogging my crafting experiences. Through the years, my projects have been published in magazines and featured on blogs. I design for Papertrey Ink and Crate Paper. When I am not in my paper suite, I am spending time with my family, trying a new recipe, or surfing the Internet. I'm also a new mom to a very sweet baby girl.
Watch Me Wednesday | Celebrating 35
Creating masculine cards is such a challenge for myself. So, I try to use supplies and layouts that scream “this is for a man!” We will be celebrating a friend’s birthday this weekend and I needed a card. I chose to use the kraft glassine paper – all distressed – because I think it has masculine appeal. I also thought a simple graphic layout was important. I kept the sentiment simple with the age of celebration and left the rest for the inside!
You can check out exactly how I created this card by viewing the video below. I also show how to stamp with your finger using photopolymer stamps (particularly small ones) so you have more control over areas you want to stamp.
