I've chosen to use a star theme throughout his card, 'cuz he really is a star in my book. To keep it more masculine looking I added stitching lines on some of the punched pieces. The addition of a layer of the new Nautical Expedition made the choice of colors to use very easy. There's a stamped line-up of tiny stars across the bottom edge of the card. Also there's a medley of different star sizes stamped inside the card with Sahara Sand, and off-stamped Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card, but you can get an idea of what I did by looking at the side of the envelope shown above. It really finished off the card nicely by having the envelope and card match like this.
Hope you like this very patriotic idea. It could easily be adapted to 4th of July party invitations or a masculine birthday card. Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your weekend!
