Create numerous masculine cards using the Take to the Sky Designer Paper by Stampin’ Up! Whether you’re making cards for Father’s Day, adventure-seekers, veterans, or outdoor enthusiasts, this is great paper to have on hand!

Masculine Birthday Card featuring the Take to the Sky Designer Paper by Stampin' Up!  In Navy Blue and Browns, featuring old airplanes and a map paper, with a "birthday wishes" sentiment.

The images in this 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper are perfect for all occasions. The maps, blueprints, textured clouds, and sketched planes are fitting for aviation, military, outdoor, or adventure-themed cards and crafts. Use the planes and clouds as backgrounds, or fussy cut around the topographical map lines and plane blueprints for a fun focal point.

In this case, I decided to use the plane images for a generic birthday card. By using these images as my focal point, the card together quickly and easily. My color palette came directly from the paper: Night of Navy, Copper Clay and the new Basic Beige. These colors worked together to create the perfect masculine color combination. If you’d prefer something brighter, make sure you check out my Color Combination Library.
