I created this Stampin’ Up! Adventurous Journey card for my son’s recent 30th birthday. He was hoping to buy a new kayak with his birthday money, so a kayaking card was very appropriate for him. When I first flicked through the current Annual Catalogue, this stamp set stood out to me because of the different aspect of the kayaker and the fact my son loves kayaking.
The “water” was created using the Layering Diorama dies and a paper design from the 6×6 By the Bay Designer Series Papers. The kayaker was coloured in using Stampin’ Blends. The Alphabet a La Mode dies were used for the numerals. Die cutting them from silver foil card made them stand out on the finished card.
It’s always a bit more challenging to come up with a masculine card. The Adventurous Journey stamp set will cover you for the male birthdays as well as for anyone who loves outdoor adventure or boating.
My other son had this card created for his birthday this year. Another great card for the men in your life!
My card was a big hit and yes my son did get his new kayak!
