Masculine Birthday Cricut Design Space Greeting Card

Supplies Needed

  • Cricut Design Space Cut File
  • Cricut Explore, Cricut Explore Air, or Cricut Maker Machine ( Cricut Design Space)
  • Xyron adhesive machine ( Xyron creative or the Xyron X for tiny embellishments)
  • Pre-scored and pre-cut greeting card (I use recollections works great in printers)
  • Masculine pattern paper
  • Dark blue card stock
  • Light blue card stock
  • Dark yellow/ orange card stock
  • Light yellow/orange card stock
  • Black or dark grey ink pad
  • Ink dauber with applicator
  • Red/orange marker
  • Glossy accents

Directions:

Using your Cricut Die-cutting machine cut out all the card stock according to the Design Space directions. Once all the card stock is cut; begin adhering each piece according to the placement in the die cut.  For the background pattern paper, I added a smoky inked effect. If you wanted to go another route, you could use a masculine embossing folder to jazz up a grungy look.  Have the liberty to play with your design.

Remember you make awesome cards!

For the smaller pieces I used a two- way Zig glue pen. After embellishing the tips of the birthday candles with the marker I added glossy accents and let dry overnight.


* Please note that the original cut file included the greeting card base with rounded corners and an envelope. I chose to use Recollections from Michael’s card bases because I didn’t care for the rounded corners for this card design. Please have the liberty to enjoy using whatever paper crafting supplies you have.

I am hoping to create more masculine stationery because I believe that we need to pour out the love of Christ to the men and young boys in our lives and communities.

Ladies, the men and boys in the world need our support.

  • Young boys and young men need to be showered with praise when other’s are tearing them down.
  • They need encouragement when their friends decide they don’t want to sit with them at lunch.
  • They need more of our love when others belittle them or disengage from them for their faith in Jesus.

At the end of the day it is our God-given responsibility to shower them with endless love because Christ loves us.

So let us be the passionate card-makers that we are for the boys and men in our lives and encourage them to keep on keeping on!
