Masculine Moments

I'm big-time into square cards lately. I had forgotten how much I enjoy finishing the card off completely by making my own envelopes. I have a template for square cards that fits on a piece of A4 cardstock - making envies out of card is a great way to ensure your wonderful creation arrives safely!
This was yesterday afternoon's project. I really like how it came out - especially because I never have enough masculine cards in my stash, and I think this one is ok for a guy, even with the flowers! I used the Card Patterns sketch for this week, and the Color Throwdown colours.

I inked the birdcage with a Basic Gray marker, then went over the bird with Not Quite Navy. I really love this Happy Moments set (free for Sale-A-Bration this month only).
I inked the sentiment with markers too and I've repeated the stamped elements on the envelope to tie it all together.

Stamps: Happy Moments, On your Birthday
Paper & Card: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy.
Urban Garden, Old Olive & Ginger Blossom Designer Paper.
Punches: Small Oval & Scalloped Edge Punches
Other: Earth Elements Buttons & Brads, Linen Thread,
Stampin' Write Markers, Dimensionals
E-mail me to purchase.

Other: Square Nestabilities, Prima Flowers, Envelope Template


  1. Sarah, this is wonderful! Your card is very creative and innovative--I especially love the envelope and how you used two colors for the sentiment. So glad you were able to play with us this week....I don't think I have ever visited your blog, and it's just wonderful too!

  2. Hi Sarah. I found your blog after you kindly commented on my SCS card today. Your blog is great and I have made a shortcut to it and will be checking in regularly. I'm also in NZ. (see my blog here if you want to:
    Keep up your gorgeous creations!

  3. This is just fabulous - love the mix of papers on this! Thanks for playing with us at CP!

  4. Beautiful card!
    Thanks for playing with us @ CP.

  5. Wonderful bold colours, Sarah! Yummy design! Sarah ... do you have a template for a square envelope??? I avoid making square cards because I don't have a template for the envie! Have a great weekend! xxx
