Our Theme Weeks continues and I have a couple masculine Birthday cards to share with you. I like the challenge of making masculine cards and this time was no different. Very excited to share what I made and I hope you enjoy what you see as much as I enjoyed creating these.
I can’t get enough of Dotted Patterns Set – 1 and I find myself using these dies all the time. And they work great for any kind of card. Also, I like making cards in pairs with more or less variation.
I used masking to stamp Kobi with gifts and balloons on white paper for the first card and while I still had all the masks on I inked the whole background with Broken China Distress Oxide. After removing all masks I liked the look of the white bear against blue background I decided to leave him that way and only added few accents with silver gel pen and some glitter.
To make my card more interesting I stamped a frame using party hat image and coloured polka dots with white gel pen.
I stamped the sentiment and a ballon on the inside with the same ink I used for background.
For the second card I stamped Kobi with presents and balloons on dark kraft paper. This time I decided to colour all the images with Polychromos pencils. I also made a stamped frame with party hat image and coloured polka dots in light blue.
I decided my background for Kobi was too dark, so I inked it with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. Kobi looks a lot better on this lighter background.
I stamped a cake image and sentiment on a separate panel and adhered on the inside of the card.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope I was able to inspire you to make some fun masculine cards. 😉
Have a wonderful day!
