Hello crafty readers! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today sharing an idea for some CAS (Clean And Simple) quick and easy masculine cards. I don’t make masculine themed cards often, but it is always nice to have them on hand. By using a beautiful pack of paper and some shadow word dies, these five cards came together all in about half an hour!

Card details:

The base of these A2 cards is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut 5 1’4″ x 4″ pieces of foil plaid paper and then cut 1/2 from the center of each card. I adhered the plaid paper to the top and bottom halves of each card leaving some white space in between for the sentiment. (*Side note – unfortunately this exact pack of paper I used from Memory Box Co. is no longer available, but you can view other beautiful packs of paper from the same company here). Memory Box Co. is a sister company of Birch Press Design.

I used a variety of sentiments to make these cards work from all occasions like hello and thanks. This card is so simple and basic that you could use any style of patterned paper and any sentiments. Plus, they’re so quick and easy you’ll have a batch of cards in no time.

Thanks for following along and have a wonderfully creative day!
