Adventure Bound Designer Paper = Lots of Cards!

Are you one of those stampers that has a difficult time coming up with Masculine-themed cards? Hate the thought of sitting and contemplating a design for your husband, boyfriend, father, son, brother, uncle or any other male person in your life? Have you seen the beautiful designer paper called "Adventure Bound Designer Paper" in our Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog?
And this is the catalog description: No delicate flowers and soft colors here--these designs are bold and spirited, making them the right choice for Father's Day, graduation, or masculine projects. Great for card fronts or backgrounds. 48 sheets in each padded stack: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. 4-1/2" x 6-1/2". Coordinates with Basic Gray, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Mossy Meadow, Sahara Sand, Whisper White.

I decided to take one sheet of each design and cut them in half. So 12 sheets = 24 cards! Each designer layer when cut in half measures 3-1/4" x 4-1/2". I kept them all clean & simple so they could easily be mass-produced by using an assortement of stamps sets, punches and framelits:

 Smoky Slate Cardstock

 Chocolate Chip Cardstock

 Bermuda Bay Cardstock

 Early Espresso Cardstock

 Cajun Craze & Vellum Cardstock

 Basic Black Cardstock

 Mossy Meadow Cardstock

 Hello Honey Cardstock

 Pool Party Cardstock

 Crumb Cake Cardstock

 Island Indigo Cardstock

Basic Gray Cardstock

Each cardstock color was cut at 10" x 7-1/2" and cut in half to measure 10" x 3-3/4". Score in the center of each piece at 5" and fold. Some of the left-over strips of cardstocks were used as layers or to stamp on. If you are a demonstrator, this would make a great Masculine class for your customers or if you are a customer, have a seat in your stamp room with a cup of coffee or tea and get creating!
