Masculine Birthday

Masculine Birthday

Good afternoon everyone! I realize lately that my cards have been girly and frilly so I thought I’d try my hand at another masculine card (which I find challenging). However, after perusing Pinterest, I found a great card to C.A.S.E

I got this beautiful stamp set from Stampin’ Up, called The Open Seas. I stamped the background in Desert Sand, overlaying the image of the ship in Cranberry and the compass in Denim, all inks from Close to My Heart.  I double matted the image before adhering it to the card base. During my last trip to Shabby Shutters, I found some beautiful nautical themed paper from Moxxie, which I matted on black cardstock.

Digging into my ribbon stash, I found some matching ribbon from Little Yellow Bicycle, and since bows are a little “girly”, I settled for a knot. I then cut the Happy Birthday sentiment that I printed on polka dot cardstock with my Spellbinders Fancy Tags die.

All in all, I am pleased with the end result, even if it doesn’t have a flower or shiny sparkles.

Thanks for visiting The Crypt…..I’ll leave a candle burning for you 5601603-spooky-skull-lit-by-candles-in-a-chapel
