Welcome to week 21 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Gray Granite, a really versatile gray from the Neutrals colour collection.

This week I didn’t have a lot of time to craft so I opened up one of my Stampin’ Up! kits: the For the Guys All-Inclusive Card Kit. For $33 this kit is incredible value as you get all the materials you need to make 10 cards with 10 matching envelopes.

After you’ve made your 10 cards you still have leftover adhesives as well as an acrylic block, a Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Spot and a fantastic stamp set full of stamps to suit virtually any man in your life!

You could simply make these cards up as instructed or make your own variations. These are how the cards look when they are made up per the enclosed instructions.

Here’s my first variation. I trimmed and mounted one of the card bases to a layer of Gray Granite cardstock onto a Basic White card base. The mountain scene was layered up as per the card design but It was adhered to the a layer of Basic White and cut into 5 strips before mounting onto the card base using dimensionals.

This card uses the lovely woodgrain pattern from one of the envelopes in this kit as the base layer on the Basic White card base – I’ll simply use another envelope instead for this card. The largest layering circle die cut this scene.

I did make up this card as per the kit instructions, but as I would not use this as a Father’s Day card (as suggested in the instructions) I substituted the Father’s Day sentiment for the birthday one instead.

I’m really happy with these masculine cards – the Gray Granite works so well these other soft neutral colours.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what she’s made this week!
