I have a difficult time making cards for men.  Especially ones that are not so young.  (Isn’t that a nice way of phrasing the age?)  One stamp set that is perfect for this age group, or anyone who loves flight, is the Soar Confidently stamp set from the Mini Catalog.




The Well Suited Designer Series Paper has been a “Go To” for masculine cards.  I love the simple patterns and the surprise of the Poppy Parade in some of the sheets.   To frame the airplane I used three different sheets of the DSP.  The touch of Poppy Parade peeking out behind the Navy layer is the same as the top layer of DSP.  My thought with these layers was similar to multiple mats in the framing of a picture.


Let It Shine

For the airplane, I stamped it in Night of Navy Ink and did nothing else.  I love the extreme details in the drawing of this stamp.  It has all it needs simply with the stamped image.

To add the finishing touch, I used the tag from the Hydrangea Haven Bundle.  It is the perfect size for a small sentiment.  The “for you” is from the Hydrangea Hill stamp set.  To add the tag, I used the Navy Twine from the Well Suited Twine Combo.  A simple little bow was the finishing touch.

Thank you very much for stopping by here today.  I hope you enjoyed this simple card.  The layers may appear more difficult, but it is definitely not!  A few layers of paper and a stamp is all you need.
