Male Cards...


Today, I have a selection of Masculine Birthday cards to show you... quite a varied selection actually!

The first card was created using Stampin' Up's 4 wheeler from their "Need For Speed" set, wording from SU's "Grunge Rock" and background numbering from Kaisercraft.  The embossing on the layering is Darice's Tire Tracks embossing folder.

Next card:  Stampin' Up products - The Open Sea Stamp Set, Grunge Rock Stamp Set and the background paper is from their Print Poetry Papers.

Waves created using torn layers of cardstock.

This fantastic under the sea card is made using Stampin' Up's Grunge Rock, By the Tide and By The Seashore Stamp Sets.  The coral is stamped with SU's Smoky Slate Ink and the Seahorse and starfish stamped with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I have added Liquid Pearls Rouge to the Starfish for dimension.

Next, I have used strips of paper to create the water on this card. The Happy Birthday is from Kaszazz - Happy Birthday Graffiti and the Sailboat and anchor images are from Darkroom Door's "Sail Away" Stamp Set.

And lastly, using paper from my stash, Stampin' Up's Borderettes and Grunge Rock stamp sets, I have created this very Mexican themed card.

Back with more of our fantastic creations soon,
