Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts Masculine Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a masculine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts cling stamp set. I paired it with a stacked stone background paper from the In Good Taste designer series paper pack and some die cuts for an elegant natural look. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Adhere a panel of the stacked stone paper from the In Good Taste designer series paper pack to an Early Espresso mat. Stamp the wood from the Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Gray Granite ink on Cinnamon Cider card stock.

Stamp the Hello Handsome sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the middle and cut it out with the label from the Painted Labels Dies. Adhere the label to the layered designer series paper and pop the layered panel on the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base with dimensionals.

Cut out the sprigs from the Sunflower Dies out of gold foil. Cut the leaf branch from the Forever Flourishing Dies out of Mossy Meadow card stock and adhere it to the two gold foil sprigs. Make a knot with the copper ribbon and adhere it to the greenery. Adhere the die cuts to the label with glue dots and finish with three gold metallic pearls.

Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the leaf from the Forever Fern stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on the bottom. Stamp the wood from the Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Gray Granite ink on a strip of Cinnamon Cider. Adhere a strip of In Good Taste DSP on top and adhere it to the bottom of the Whisper White panel. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Pallet Thoughts has some great basic and rustic images for making masculine cards. And the sentiments are fantastic! Click on the image below to get the details of this stamp set in my Online Store.

  1. Great card, Akiko. Love every element you used. I’ve had that stamp set on my maybe list – think it just moved up to “buy”. Thanks for the inspiration!
