Vintage Masculine B-day Card

A masculine card with a vintage feel. Colours are muted and the "painted wood" designer paper really looks like the paint is peeling off.

YOU-nique Bday card, designed by Grace Baxter

The Sentiment
I created a special sentiment to go along with the theme of the vintage paper. I first designed it in PhotoShop, then uploaded it into Cricut Design Space. This gave me an image to upload in Design Space to print then cut. 

About the Card

  • Size: 5x7" muted aqua base
  • Front:  2 finished panels 
    • 1 woodgrain paper, matted with chocolate brown;
    • 1 designer birthday paper matted with chocolate brown
  • vintage truck, cut from smooth rustic/vintage navy cardstock
  • truck mounted on corrugated piece (from a cookie package)


Prepare the verse in Word, print on cream coloured cardstock.

Cut a frame to lay OVER that page, rather than wasting designer paper by laying a large piece underneath the verse page.

I made my frame in Design space by creating 2 boxes, and "splicing" them to remove the centre piece. This leaves a nice frame without waste.
