Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited to share this card because I made this one and I super struggle with Man Cards!
This card is quick and simple and simple and masculine. I just love bling, ribbons, and pinks so much that I struggle with masculine cards a lot. When I create a good one, I tend to make LOTS to use all year long.
I started with a Mossy Meadow card base. Next, I took a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Paper (3″ x 4″) and stamped the tree from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set. I used Mossy Meadow Ink for all of the images on this card. Then, I placed (NOT adhered…yet) this onto a piece of Crumb Cake measuring 4″ x 4″. I stamped the greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday along the top and bottom. I really really wanted my Stamparatus to work for the greeting and just notch the platform down for each greeting but the greeting was too long and the spacing was odd. Soooooo I just thought I would wing it and it was fabulous but this is also why I suggest not adhering it till after your greeting is stamped. Simply place the stamped designer paper on it so you can line things up. Then hold your breath and stamp. Just kidding it’s only 3 times and it’s okay if they aren’t perfectly straight across or evenly spaced. Mine sure aren’t and it’s still fabulous! Also, always remember there are 2 sides to every piece of paper! 😉
After stamping the greeting, added the stamped designer paper and adhere it to the card front! For the finishing touch, I tied some Linen Thread along the spine of the card, looping around 3 times. Since linen thread is so thin, I always double knot it before tying the bow! This way it is nice and tight around the card and if you think bows are not masculine, you can leave it as a knot.
