Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday

Today’s card is oh so masculine. I’m loving the layers and the colors – and the Designer Series Paper. In Good taste DSP is part of the 15% off Designer Series Paper Sale through Aug 2. If you don’t have this package of papers, now is the perfect time to get it. Let’s look at the card.

Masculine Birthday.1

The Biggest Wish stamp set was used for the sentiment on the front of the card: the happy was stamped in Cherry Cobbler while the BIRTHDAY was stamped in Early Espresso – on a Basic White panel.This was layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock slightly larger. But we should start at the beginning…

  • Thick Basic White card base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Cover the card front with a panel of the In Good Taste DSP 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, adhering with liquid glue
  • Layer another piece of In Good Taste DSP (4 1/4 x 3 3/4) with Cherry Cobbler ( 4 14 x 4)
  • Adhere this to the card front, centered.
  • Layer a vertical strip of Early Espresso 1 3/8 x 5 1/2, adhering with liquid glue.
  • Add the sentiment layer with dimensionals (Basic White panel is 2 3/4 x 2 and the Cherry Cobbler panel is 3 x 2 1/4)
  • Add three Opal Rounds – and the card front is done!
  • Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4). The sentiment comes from the Hey birthday Chick stamp set.
  • Adhere a Cherry Cobbler “frame” 3 /3/4 x 5. (This was in my stash)
  • Die cut the number 40 (or some other number) in Cherry Cobbler and in scraps of In Good Taste. Adhere together with tiny dots of liquid glue. Adhere under the sentiment. Having the number front & center is the perfect touch for this card. I took a picture before the numbers were added and you can see how it’s rather plain, but with the numbers – well, they make it ‘pop’. The numbers were created using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Do you notice how having the two layers of numbers creates a shadow effect?

I added coordinating DSP from In Good Taste DSP pack to the envelope flap. I stamped the balloons in Cherry Cobbler ink – from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set – and voila! The card is complete. My friend is picking up the card this morning.

    Great card design. I kept wondering what EF you used and then the light bulb went on when you said it was DSP! Not enough coffee yet! I’ll have to take a look at this paper again!
