Geometric shapes are very trendy right now.  You may have hated geometry in school, but geometric shapes are hot in home decor, clothing AND hand made cards.

When someone special is turning 40, you want your card to be young and vibrant!  (This one also included an impressive president on the inside.)

At least that makes sense to me!  We added two Jumbo Rhinestones, three smaller Basic Rhinestones and  punched out some Silver Glimmer Paper to insure that the bling factor was satisfied as well.  but if you wanted a more masculine card, just leave these off and perhaps try a different color than Stampin’ Up!‘s Raspberry Ripple.
