Male 21st Birthday

I had an order for a Masculine 21st Birthday card - and only 24hrs notice.  To be honest, Man Cards are not my thing - I like my pretties too much!  With no other details, I played it safe and went with Chocolate and Vanilla.  I started with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch, which I think I deviated a bit too much so I don't know if I should enter it or not.  Maybe I'll try again!!  :)

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with Chocolate Chip (pierced around the border) and then two pieces of Kaisercraft's Cafe Culture DP.  The main panel is VV cut with the Label 9 Nestabilites and layered with Chocolate chip (Small Circle Nestabilities) and VV (Large Circle Nestabilities and embossed with Swiss Dots EF).  The numbers are from SU's retired Headline Numbers set - a very handy large size - that I stamped in Chocolate Chip.  Originally the Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip on VV and cut with the Petite Oval Nestabilities and sponged with Close to Cocoa.  To finish I added some Topaz Oregon Raindrops (thanks to Michelle for those!) to the right corners.

Stamps - Headline Numbers, Birthday Whimsy (SU)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Kaisercraft Cafe Culture DSP
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Label 9, Small Circle and Large Circle, Petite Oval Nestabilities, Swiss Dots EF, Topaz Oregon Raindrops, Pop Dots.

Well, that's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!

Wonderful job on this card. Love the nestie shape you used as the base for the 21. Great card.

I think you do masculine quite well! I like this as much as your masculine "forty" and "50" cards

Well you might not be comfortable with masculine cards but you certainly did a great job on this one! The colors are perfect and just the right touches... not too much, not too feminine!

I haven`t made many masculine cards in my life because I`m just no good at it... it`s so much easier to make something pretty;) ,but I just LOVE yours! It`s gorgeous!
