Masculine Birthday

Today I thought I would share one of my favorite masculine birthday cards from recent months.  This card is 5" square when folded.  It features the Party Hearty stamp set and the colors Soft Suede and Not Quite Navy (and Whisper White).  There is a Modern Label Punch, a clip from our Hodgepodge Hardware (sorry, this is in a retired bronze finish), Polka Dot Ribbon (also retired now).  The "sprinkles" on the cupcakes have Dazzling Diamonds glitter, applied with Tombow adhesive.  On the party hats, our new Rhinestone Jewel Accents add some bling!  (Who says guys don't like a little bling on their birthdays, too?)  The layers really make this card special and ~not sure if you can see this in the photos~ Stampin' Dimensionals make the party hats and the cupcakes and the label really "pop!"

The inside of the card has a layer of Whisper White with the party hats stamped along the bottom edge and "Happy Birthday" stamped in the center.  This white layer makes it easier to write your message. 

Thank you for your continued patience as I get this blog set up to be a welcome place for visitors!  Drop me a comment anytime!

Happy Stampin'
