Thanks with Warmth and Cheer

You can never have too many thank you cards, especially masculine ones. Doesn’t it always seem that when you need a thank you card for a guy, all that you have left are pink cards with flowers on them? Why is that? This card is one for the gents! I love the plaid patterns in the Warmth and Cheer Designer Paper and they make awesome masculine cards for fall or winter.

Challenge Inspiration

This card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #264!


I changed from the sketch just a little bit. My circle is a little smaller because I also have a leaf taking up space there.

Card Directions

  1. Cut and fold Basic Black card base.
  2. Cut a strip of Warmth and Cheer designer Series paper 1-1/2″ (3.7 cm) wide and the same height as the card.
  3. Die cut or punch out a circle from Basic Black. Mine was about 1-1/4″ (3.1 cm) in diameter.
  4. Use the Botanical Builders Thinlit Dies (or any of several cool leaf dies) to cut a leaf out of Wild Wasabi cardstock. Use a sponge to apply Garden Green ink to the edges of the leaf.
  5. Die cut a sentiment from Crumb Cake cardstock using the Hello You Thinlits.
  6. Arrange all the pieces and adhere them to the card base.
  7. Don’t forget to finish the inside of your card with a layer of lighter color cardstock, because it is really hard to write a message on black!

Manly Color Combination

This color combination is inspired by the woods, army camouflage, and all things manly. It’s a monochromatic color scheme with tints and shades of one color: green. Everything else is a neutral color.
