Male Birthday Card




A lot of people, myself included, find it difficult to come up with a birthday card suitable for a male. We don't want something that is too feminine, and not something that is too dull either.

At our January get together, Jenny Soulsby showed us how to make this card, which she found on Splitcoast Stampers, by "barefootscrapper".

It's my husband's birthday next month, so for once I have a card already made up!

It showcases a great stamp set called The Open Sea, which is in the Summer Mini Catalogue, which means it's only available until 31 March 2012. Do you have the Summer Mini Catalogue yet? If you would like your free copy, please email me with your details and I'll post one for you.

Supplies Used (all Stampin Up):
Stamps:  The Open Sea, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink:  Whisper White craft stamp pad, Stazon black ink
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Tools:  Ovals Dies and Big Shot Die Cutting Machine; Square Lattice embossing folder, Modern Label and Word Window punches.
Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler/White Bakers Twine, Dimensionals, Stampin Pastels chalks.

I hope you like this card. If you've made a great male birthday card, send it to me and I'll post it on my blog!

Happy stamping!
Tina
