Hello and welcome back to the craft room and today’s UFO: Four Masculine Birthday Cards post. What is a UFO you may be asking? Is it an Unidentified Flying Object? Not in this case. Today we are talking about UnFinished craft Objects.
I have no idea how long these unfinished cards have been at the bottom of the pile on my craft desk. Unfortunately, it has been long enough that I have no idea who I got the pattern from. However, this is the weekend to get them finished and shared with you all. So, let’s get right to it shall we?
Unfinished Craft Objects
This is the perfect pattern to bust through your 6×6 paper pads. For these 4 cards I used two pieces of pattern paper from the Adventure pack from My Mind’s Eye. The kraft card is from Recollections as is the Ivory card base.
Because I can’t send you to the pattern designer I will share the measurements with you’re here. However, if you recognize this and know who I need to credit the design to, please drop a name in the comments below. If your pattern paper has a direction to it like mine did, be sure to keep that in mind before making your first cut.
Card Mat: 5” x 3.75”
Top 3 pieces from left to right: 2” x 2”; 1.5” x 2”; 1” x 2”
Bottom piece of pattern paper: 4.75” x 1”
Sentiment strip: 5” x .75”
Before I glued everything together I went around all of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The sentiment is from the Card Phrases stamp set by Stampabilities. Rather than stamp the sentiment with black ink, I chose to use Ground Espresso Distress Archival Ink. I like how dark it is without being dark black.

I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out. The birthday stamp is the perfect size for this card. I can see so many different possibilities with this design. It would even make a beautiful Christmas card if you needed a lot, but didn’t have time to make really elaborate cards.
Thank you so much for joining me for today’s UFO: Four Masculine Birthday Cards post. I would love to know what type of card you would make with this design. I’m also counting on you all to help me figure out who the designer is! When I know for sure I will update the post.
Have a wonderful week everyone and I will see you in the craft room again real soon!
