Hello friends! I am always needing birthday cards for guys. This quick and easy design works for men or women, boys or girls, however I concentrated on using blues and greens and sentiments for this masculine birthday card.
For the background, images from the Birthday Sweets Stamp Set were stamped on a smooth white cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" panel using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Hero Arts Reactive Ink in Blue Hawaii, Splash, Green Apple, and Key Lime Fizz were applied over the embossed imaged with ink blending tools. The excess ink was wiped off the embossed areas with a dry paper towel.
Some of the ink was "lifted" from the stars using a water brush pen. Hero Arts Crystal Lacquer was then applied to the stars and allowed to dry.
Smooth white cardstock was applied to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive and die cut with the Dude Die before being inked with Splash and Key Lime Fizz. The sentiment was adhered to the background and finished with a layer of Hero Arts Crystal Lacquer.
A sentiment from the Birthday Sweets Stamp Set was stamped on smooth white cardstock inked with Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment was die cut with the coordinating Birthday Sweets Dies and adhered under the "dude" sentiment with foam adhesive.
Another phrase was stamped on black cardstock with clear embossing ink using white embossing powder before being die cut with a Nested Banners Die. This sentiment was also adhered with foam adhesive.
The design was finished with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Silver Mini Star Confetti.
