Red White and Blue birthday











Today I combined the JUGS33 challenge to use red, white, and blue (with kraft optional), with the Sweet Stop 56 sketch with a twist (masculine). I made a birthday card for my father-in-law. Masculine cards always seem difficult, but this color scheme is perfect for a man. Stamps, ribbon and red and blue card stock are from SU! Oh, I'm so excited about this: I finally found a use for the patterned paper that I bought in big packages and don't really like. I don't want to get rid of it, obviously, but not really my style. So . . . I figured out you can use it to "line" your homemade envelopes! Use the white side for the envelope and the "liner" is built in. Custom envelope!
