Do you have a hard time creating a masculine card? I LOVE the Adventure Bound Paper Stack!  It has wonderful prints that are perfect for masculine cards and outdoor enthusiasts.  Thes papers are great for Father’s Day and Graduation cards.

The top sheet in the photo below is almost a card in itself!  Notice the design that is grass? one that is birch bark?  There is a design that looks like a brick wall and one that is woodgrain.  The flip sides are just as wonderful.

Here is what the Stampin’ Up! catalog says about this paper stack.

 “No delicate flowers and soft colors here–these designs are bold and spirited, making them the right choice for Father’s Day, graduation, or masculine projects. Great for card fronts or backgrounds. 48 sheets in each padded stack: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″. Coordinates with Basic Gray, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Mossy Meadow, Sahara Sand, Whisper White.”

 The Adventure Bound Paper Stack is only $6.95.  At this price, you might want to buy 2!   But they are only available for purchase from the Occasions Catalog until June 2nd, or while supplies last.  So don’t wait too long….

Below, you can see the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge 253 which inspired my card.
