Happy Monday, everyone!!! I’m super excited today because this card is quick, simple, and masculine! I really struggle with man cards because I love flowers and bling but Hooray Happy Birthday! I nailed it!!!
Not only does this card fit the perfect man card look, I also used up a lot of scraps of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper! Double win!!
I started with an Island Indigo card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and added a strip of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper to the left side. This designer paper is 6″ x 6″ and I cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ for this card and was left with a 2″ x 6″ strip which I cut for this card to 2″ x 5-1/4″. I love using up scraps. Next, I added this to the card front.
For the greeting, I cut a piece of Whisper White (2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″). Using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set, I stamped the speckled balloon in Island Indigo Ink. Then I stamped the Hooray Balloon in Old Olive Ink and punched it out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. I added that balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little texture. Then I stamped the greeting in Old Olive. Finally, I layered this piece onto a piece of Old Olive (2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″) and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a few Enamel Shapes all around. I love how it turned out!
