A Manly Birthday

Manly Happy Birthday Card

It’s a rare occasion that I make a manly card. For one thing I don’t own many manly stamps and for another I have a hard time not adding ribbon to a card!  Frankly, I just don’t find them as much fun to make as one that includes ribbon or glitter. LOL!  In the Punch Bunch stamp set you will find an assortment of stamp images for different occassions, but this great Happy Birthday image fits the bill and makes for a quick birthday card.  The bold HB stands out along with the Not Quite Navy cardstock.  I think the strips of cardstock could count as ribbon, don’t you?  To add texture I ran some striped Designer Series Paper from the Springtime Vintage paper pack through my Big Shot using the Textured Impressions “Square Lattice” Embossing Folder and then sponged Certainly Celery across the embossed image to add more depth.  Added an antique brad to complete the manliness.  What do you think – is it manly enough?

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Punch Bunch; Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, and Certainly Celery;  Designer Series Paper:  Springtime Vintage; Ink: Not Quite Navy; Accessories:  Big Shot, Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Antique Brads, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Sponges, Scallop Square Punch and 3/4″ Circle Punch.
