Masculine Birthday Cards

Good Monday morning, friends! Today I have several masculine cards for you. As you can see these cards have the same layout. They were made with my October card class & there’s a funny story behind the top left card.

I designed & stamped the top left card but I couldn’t find the Brewed for You matching dies. So I fussy cut the mug with full intentions of finding the dies & cutting for class participants. Since we recently moved homes & the studio needs organizing, I wasn’t surprised that the dies were MIA.

But after looking & looking to no avail, I checked my past orders. Guess what?! Right, I never ordered the dies! What was I thinking?! I knew my class members would not enjoy fussy cutting so I redesigned the card; the top right.

The bottom card was designed as an alternative card to the beer mug card. The cards were super easy. We began with a 3.75” x 5” piece of Basic White & stamped the beer mug or compass in Momento Black ink.

The DSP is Rustic Harvest & we colored the larger stripe using our Crushed Curry marker. The central image was stamped on a layering circle piece. It was mounted on a Basic Black piece punched with the Decorative Circle punch & then a Crushed Curry Layering Circle dies. A strip of Crushed Curry card-stock was added under the DSP. Matte Black dots were added to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping today! Marilyn (aka MJ)
