Masculine Birthday

Good Afternoon!

Back from vacation and well rested!  Somehow we managed to miss that week of deep freeze!  YAY!

I have made a simple Masculine Birthday card.  I still find them difficult to create, yet I keep trying.  This will be entered into the following Challenges;  Paper Smooches, Anything GoesSimon Says Monday,Winter BluesSimon Says Wednesday, Pattern PaperScrapy Land, Anything Goes and Stamping Sensations, Cold And Frosty Colors.  

I used the Paper Smooches stamp sets;  Sentiment Sampler, Let's Party and the Foliage 2 die set.  I die cut several pieces of 'greenery' in many shades of blues; light blue, navy, teal and purple.  I layered them on top of each other on a panel of Designer Paper in gray and purple with polka dots.

My sentiment panel was die cut using the MFT Cross Stitched Rectangles die.  In Dove Gray ink I stamped the background 'bubbles' to correspond with all of the polka dots and the HB sentiment is stamped in Night Of Navy ink.  3 sequins added for accent.

You can see the bit of dimension, as I popped the sentiment panel up.

That's it.  Easy Peasy.  

Thanks for popping in.

  2. So glad you're back but sorry you had to leave that beautiful, warm paradise only to come back to yet another deep freeze week. This card is fabulous ... what a great masculine design ... I think I'll have to case this one (ifin you don't mind that is). Stay warm and again ... welcome home!

  3. Wonderful masculine design for a birthday. I have trouble too with the masculine ones. I will need to pin this one, so when I do need one, I have a quick reference.

  4. Love the different textures and sizes of dots.

  5. All those dots and die cuts make for prefect masculine card. I'm going to pin this one so I remember to CASE it
