I don’t make a lot of masculine cards and when I do it is usually only because there is a birthday or Father’s Day coming up. I was so thankful that the May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up!, Batter Up, was all about sporty boys and men so I could have a good supply of awesome masculine cards!!
Normally I like to see how many cards I can get out of a Paper Pumpkin kit, but this time I mostly stuck to the provided instructions with only a few minor changes. I wanted to be able to create Father’s Day, birthday, and thank you cards from this set so I also used a couple stamps from the Art Gallery stamp set.
I love the bright colours of this kit especially the bold red starburst of this Father’s Day card. With a quick “Dad” stamp and a few embellishments, this card was done in no time!!
The birthday card is perfect for the baseball fanatic, and I know exactly which one of my son’s friends will be receiving this card!!
And the final card from this baseball inspired Paper Pumpkin kit was created with teachers in mind… because they are the best!!
I hope you got a little inspiration from these cards and are able to add a few masculine cards to your collection!
I love seeing the little red Paper Pumpkin box filled with crafts on my doorstep every month!! The kits each come with an exclusive stamp set, Classic Stampin’ Spot (a different colour every time), and everything you need to make wonderful projects.
