Hi everyone. My focus this week was a manly birthday card. They are hard for us to create sometimes right? I have mostly men in my family and it's difficult sometimes for me to come up with good ideas for cards. I have the buck stamp and just love him, so I thought why not! Lets make a manly card.
Here is my Buck Birthday Card. Hope it inspires you.
Supplies used to make this card:
Just For Fun Stamps;
D3821 Right Facing Buck
F3868 Balsam Branch
WB8011 Greetings Word Block
Wild Wasabi, Garden Green & Old Olive Stampin' Up Ink Pads
Espresso Truffle Memento Ink Pad
Tea Dye Distress Ink
Vanilla Card Stock
Dark Blue Card Stock From Tim Holtz
Blue Twine from Tim Holtz
Foam Mounting Tape
I stamped all over my back ground using all three of the green stamp pads with the Balsam Branch stamp. Then stamped my "Happy Birthday" and my Buck with the espresso truffle ink. I went around the all the edges of the vanilla paper with the tea dye ink pad to distress it. I mounted the vanilla paper on to the blue card stock, but at a slant. Then put my corrugated cardboard on and my twine and put my buck on with foam mounting tape. I also put the sentiment on with the foam mounting tape.
See you next month!
