Paper Girls Challenge #149: Masculine Birthday

Hello! Today's Paper Girls Challenge is all about Masculine Birthday cards and projects. Not surprising to many, making masculine cards is sometimes a challenge. Since I have two little girls, a TON of my paper and embellishments are pretty girly. For this challenge, I wanted to challenge myself by NOT using patterned paper, and instead use a few things that would imply masculinity, without be overtly obvious. My card today I think was a good mix of color and small details that create a pretty neat project.
I started with a simple kraft cardstock background and crackled, colored cardstock. I have had the Tim Holtz Soda Bottle Blueprint Rubber Stamp (got on clearance at Hobby Lobby) for about a year now, and this was the perfect time to start using it. I used a Memento Dew Drop in Nautical Blue for the ink, then colored the star with a silver colored pencil. The last few details were a Stampin Up stamp from a long time ago with some silver embossing powder, a few enamel shapes and a touch of Wink of Stella glitter pen in a few areas.

Items Used:
kraft cardstock (Neenah cardstock), blue cardstock (Tim Holtz Distress Core'dinations), Tim Holtz Soda Bottle Blueprint Rubber Stamp, Memento Dew Drop (Nautical Blue), Prismacolor colored pencil (Silver), Wink of Stella, enamel shapes Pin It
