Masculine Birthday Card

Today I would like to share with you a masculine card which is not something I tend to create often. My husband needed a card for a birthday card for a friend whose party was a couple days ago. This is what I came up with:


I stamped the lighthouse image from the Shine Your Light set from Sweet N Sassy stamps onto confetti white CS with black ink then sponged around the edges with baja ink. I crinkled my white paper then sponged the creases with ink to make them stand out before stamping the sentiment over the top. The tabs are made using the word window punch and putting a brad through. The middle strip is accented with charcoal twine.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Shine your Light and Happy Birthdays set for the sentiment
paper- kraft, black, baja breeze, confetti white
accessories- charcoal twine, word window punch, pewter brads, sewing machine, distressed stripes cuttlebug folder, foam tape.

This Thursday, Nov. 3, Sweet N Sassy stamps is releasing 6 new stamp set along with some new dies as well. The release party is from 8-10pm EST in our forum on Splitcoast so you won't want to miss the fun. We are also having our release blog hop so I hope you will stop back on Thursday for a peek at the new sets before they are released. It is also our birthday month so lots of sales and cool events happening. You can read more about it HERE.

Well, I am off to work now. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

I love the texture...the embossing, the twine and particularly the rumpled paper. It's a fantastic effect.
