I am putting together the gift pack of cards and matching envelopes for my nephews’ teachers for their end of the school year gifts.  I have done this since Rylee was in Kindergarten (He is now in 4th grade! Time FLIES!), and the teachers love it!  It is different than the other gifts they get.  I have a few friends that are elementary school teachers, and they have told me that they have cupboards full of coffee mugs!

I always try to put two masculine birthday cards in the package.  This will be one of them.  I think it can be masculine even with a little bit of glimmer!

I made this before Christmas.  I cannot wait to have time to stamp again!  I miss it!

Here is the card I cased: http://creativedistraction.blogspot.com/2012/01/celebrate-sale-bration-sab-card-sample.html

Here is my card:


I like the big circle that she has, but I do not have that punch – yet!  So, I went with a square.  It was faster and easier for me to do this.  I also used only one shade of blue. I thought the Pacific Point being darker was more masculine.  Do you agree?

I also like that it is patriotic!

I used a different embossing folder.  The folder I used was not out yet when the original stamper made her card. I think it ties well with the stars theme, and the polka dots on the designer series paper tie with some of the confetti pieces on the celebrate image.  So, I think it is all matchy, matchy. 🙂
