Masculine Birthday Card

My father’s 88th birthday is coming up this weekend so I made him this card.  When we were growing up, Dad loved to go hunting deer, duck, goose, pheasant, squirrels, etc., so I thought it only appropriate to use the pheasant from the Walk in the Wild stamp set for his birthday card.  I CASE’d my card from Pam Steckham at http://stampininthesun77.blogspot.com/2013/09/stampin-ups-walk-in-wild-for-happy.html

Supplies:

  • Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Wood Grain embossing folder
  • Labels collection framelits
  • die cutting machine (i.e. Cuttlebug, Big Shot, etc.)
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz marker
  • Adhesive, dimensionals, Sticky tape

Assembling the card:

  1. Cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold to form a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card.
  2. Cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″ and run through the Cuttlebug using the Woodgrain folder
  3. Next I cut a piece of burlap ribbon about 7 1/2″ and put 1/4″ sticky tape along the long edges of the ribbon.  Adhere to card front.
  4. Adhere this to the card base.
  5. Using the Labels collection framelits (I used the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th framelits in the set), cut largest one from Crumb Cake, then cut the next smallest from Cajun Craze.
  6. Stamp image on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the smallest of the three framelits chosen for this project.
  7. Using the Pear Pizzazz marker, color in the grass.
  8. Adhere the layers together then using dimensionals, adhere to the front of the card.
  9. On the inside of the card  I used a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for my greeting.

This is a quick and easy masculine card to make!  Thanks for stopping by!
