Do you struggle with masculine cards for birthdays? I sure do! Some of the Simon Says Stamp Celebrate You Release products spoke to me to create this fun and playful peeking frogs birthday card. I absolutely love the result and hope it inspires you to play around with products to create masculine guy cards!

The eyes on the frogs die cut all the way if you want to do paper piecing. I purposely kept those and colored them in with pale yellows and added black gel pen to the eye centers.
Sentiments from the Big Birthday Greetings Stamp Set and Stop Drop Party Stamp Set were stamped on the panel with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink. The panel was trimmed down to 3 3/4" x 5 1/2". Stars from the Stop Drop Party Stamp Set were stamped around the design with Simon Says Stamp Sunshine, Green Apple, and Island Blue inks.
Another panel was trimmed to 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" and inked with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. The frog panel was adhered to the inked background with foam adhesive. Party hats were die cut from Simon Says Stamp Island Blue Cardstock and Gina K Wild Dandelion Cardstock, assembled and adhered to the frogs heads with foam adhesive squares.
Smooth white cardstock was adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive and inked with Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks. The HBD Die was die cut from part of the inked design and adhered above the "happy birthday dude" phrase. Another sentiment from the Stop Drop Party Stamp Set was stamped on the inked background with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The coordinating Stop Drop Party Die was used to die cut the sentiment and was adhered to the card as shown.
The Diagonal Stripes Background was stamped on smooth white cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink, trimmed into two 1/2" x 5 1/2" strips and adhered along both long sides of the card. The frog panel was adhered on top and the frog's eyes were finished with a layer of Glossy Accents.
