Here I am, making more masculine birthday cards! Funny thing, but Stampin’ Up! is featuring masculine cards in this quarter’s Stampin’ Success magazine. “Make It Masculine” is the event of the month. Look at the cover:
I’ve made masculine cards with two of the three sets showing on the cards the mystery man is holding. Here’s a previous post where I used the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper:
But, I chose the Waterfront Stamp Set for today’s project, and I think it works equally well.
I can’t speak for all men, but I bet a number of them would like to spend their birthday in a mountain cabin.
I set out to create this scene using the Waterfront Stamp Set. I stamped the mountains in Sahara Sand Ink, The trees in Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz, the earth in Chocolate Chip, and the sun in Daffodil Delight.
The window was cut from Crumb Cake cardstock with a Hearth & Home Die, matching the Crumb Cake card base. I set the window, with its beautiful view, in the wall of a log cabin. What could be more perfect for a log cabin than Wood Textures Designer Series Paper? Some things just can’t be improved, and I’m so glad this paper will be around for a while.
I needed the sentiment to say the right thing, along with being the right size and shape for the Fab Friday challenge. See what I mean?
I found, “Enjoy you special day,” in the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set, and stamped it in Chocolate Chip Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Using my Stampin’ Trimmer and Stampin’ Snips, I cut my own banner to fit.
On the inside, I stamped the lake from the Waterfront Stamp Set (think Lake Tahoe) in Pool Party Ink. And, it was my first time for using “Happy Birthday” from the Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, Eclectic Expressions. I really like the font, don’t you?
I added some lake water to the envelope flap, and one more masculine birthday card was complete!
I hope you’ve been inspired to create some masculine cards for the men in your life. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
