Paper Crafts Magazine May/June 2012

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! It was pretty dang hot here on the East Coast, so it was the perfect opportunity to stay inside during the day and get some crafting done. 🙂 Really any opportunity is the perfect opportunity, right?

Today I thought I’d share a super simple card I made for the May/June 2012 issue of Paper Crafts magazine. It was in the feature “Designer Challenge: Feminine & Masculine” where a pair of us had to use the same products from a manufacturer and make a feminine and masculine card. I was paired up with the super sweet and talented Becky Olsen and was assigned the masculine card so here was my take on it using Echo Park’s “Time and Seasons” collection:


Like I said, super simple (my first draft of this had a branch of leaves on it), but it definitely has that masculine vibe. Even though Father’s Day is long over, I think this would work just fine for a Dad’s birthday. How fun is that newsprint paper from Echo Park? I love it.

This was a really fun challenge and the other card pairings are pretty awesome. Definitely check out the May/June issue here (you can still order it!).

Well that’s it for today! Hope your week is off to a great start and I’ll see you back here this week! Thanks for stopping by.
