Happy Birthday To A Classic

Happy birthday to a classic!  What a classic sentiment for all those classic men you may know!  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Happy Birthday To A ClassicThis week, the sweet Jaydee is hosting our Theme challenge. For our stamping pleasure, she has selected “Birthdays”.  What a great theme! Can’t we always use a birthday card? I know I can…especially masculine ones.  I created this one using the He’s All That suite of products. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

Happy Birthday To A Classic
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

One of my favorite sketches is the one I used today. It is perfect for showing off coordinating patterns of designer series papers, like these from the He’s The Man collection. I selected the Cajun Craze pattern, with its classic cars, since it pairs perfectly with the sentiment. After that, the rest was easy.  A very subtle dark plaid was perfect for the large background pattern, while the Sahara Sand pattern brought out the Sahara Sand color of the cars.  A “pop” of color was provided by three stars, which are part of the die cut sheets included with the paper.  To add interest, rustic metallic dots were used to embellish each star.
