Here is a quick share for the day; it is my attempt at a masculine birthday card. My brother-in-law had his 30th birthday and I needed to get some card off to him. I didn’t want to use a tree set and many of my stamp sets used cutesy animals or had lots of flowers, neither of which scream manly man. 🙂 So, I relied heavily on colors to man-up this card.
I had some fun with my Party Hearty stamp set by paper piecing the party hats. I stamped with my Dusty Durango ink and then stamped again on a piece of dsp so I could cut out two more of the party hats to glue over the stamped image. I also used one of the Texture Plates for the BigShot to create the diamond background in Soft Suede. The one other piece you might not be able to see, I punched out the Celebrate You stamped image and then behind that punchout, I adhered a scallop circle punch in Dusty Durango.
