Happy Thursday friends !
Today I wanted to share this birthday card . If your like me I have a hard time making Masculine cards But today's card I think fits the bill and would be great for any guy .
I love the Going Global stamp set
- (w)# 140745
I love how there are different greeting in this set unlike my other favorite masculine sets found on pages 82-84 in the annual catalog .
I really love the compass and wanted to make that my focal point on my card.
I was also thinking old world map when stamping the Tip Top Taupe card stock #138336 layer ... so I crumbled the card stock and then sponged on the crease lines with Early Espresso classic ink#126974. All layers when sponged with the Early Espresso and a Stamping Sponge # 141337 and I also distressed the edges with my fingernail .
The Happy Birthday on the front is from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set # 140675 I did the same way .The greeting in the inside of my card is from the Watercolor Card kit # 140406 .
I also used the Going Places designer paper stack # 140581
Here are the measurements of today's card :
Basic Black # 121045
- cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2
Tip Top Taupe card stock 138336
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
- cut at 3" x 3"
Going Places Designer paper stack # 140581
- cut at 3 3/4" x 5"
Compass punched out with the 2" circle punch # 133782 and that was stamped on Crumb Cake card stock # 120953
I hand cut out the N-S-E-W center, then colored in with Pool Party marker #131904.
I touched a few spots with the White Gel Pen # 105021 with a Vintage Faceted designer button # 127555 in the center. I added a up close photo of the compass to show all those details .
