It’s time for another masculine birthday card!
I think guys like gray, so I chose Smoky Slate for the card base. Then, I added a 1 1/2″ X 5 1/4″ strip of Smoky Slate to the Whisper White Cardstock layer. For some reason, guys also seem to like argyle (think socks), so I embossed the strip with the Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, stamped in Melon Mambo Ink, and cut with a Painted Labels Die. Don’t you love this circular die-cut?
The confetti was made with a Dino Die and three colors of cardstock scraps: Smoky Slate, Melon Mambo, and Pool Party. The Dino Die cut out a bunch of little triangles, and I adhered them with pin dots of Liquid Glue. Thinking men can deal with some shine, I added three silver, sequin, stars.
Now for exciting news!
First of all, this month’s Host Code gift is something I know you’ll want in your collection. It’s the new, fabulous, Ornate Floral Embossing Folder! I’ve already used it on a number of my cards, and it adds gorgeous texture. Just add my Host Code (DGMYPXET) in the box provided when you order a minimum of $50.00 in the month of May, and I will send the embossing folder to you in June.
Secondly, I’m having a drawing for two items: the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set AND the Small Bloom Punch. Your name will be entered in the drawing when you place a minimum $100.00 order in May.
