Masculine Birthday Card

I have terrible trouble with cards for men but this large Happy Birthday stamp is perfect!


The stamp is from Woodware and I stamped it in black Versafine embossed with clear powder then coloured with three different colour Promarkers.  I coloured some scraps of card with the same colours of Promarkers then cut the little stars out using a die from Mama Elephant.  The border around the edge was drawn with a thin marker pen then the panel adhered to a Kraft card base.  I am really happy with the CAS result and I like the colours which are very different to what I usually use. This stamp is so useful.  It can be used for anyone just by changing the colours and adding different embellishments or just leaving it with no embellishments and adding glossy accents or glitter.  I have another large stamp with just the word 'happy' and then several little sentiments to go with it.  It is so far un-inked!  I must get round to using it sometime!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Craft Barn - Stars
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes
Casology - Masculine

All these blogs are definitely worth a peek!

Thank you so much for popping by, I love it when you do and look forward to reading any comments.

Take care and have a fabulous weekend!  Christine xxx

Love your card, it really is a great stamp and like you say, it could be used for any birthday, male or female. I really like the idea of using Glossy Accents on the words, I bet that looks wonderful too! Hugs, Anne xx

This does make a fabulous masculine card, Chris! And it sounds like your NBUS stamp would work in much the same way! Hugs, Darnell
