This first card I made for a friend of ours that will be celebrating a milestone birthday this weekend. Sometimes I find it hard to create masculine cards but seriously this was super simple to make and I think it turned out pretty Rad too! I loved how it was coming together that I was inspired to make the Girly version of it at the same time, which funny was a little more challenging only because of what I wanted it it to say, and because I also had to search through my entire collection to find the right stamps.

Here is how I made these cards:
  • First I began by die cutting each letter from the BEE Bold Alphabet dies 3 times.
  • I then stacked and glued them together.
  • For the "DUDE" card used the sentiments from the Special Teacher to stamp onto a black Sentiment Banner die cut. I used a white pigment ink and heat set using a white embossing powder.

  • I then created the background panels using Bristol paper and a combination of distress oxide inks. (See the thumbnails below for inks used)
  • Once the background panels were dry I used the largest stitched Rectangle Frame to die cut them out.

  • For this "GIRLfriend" Card, I used a combination of stamps to create the sentiment.
  • On the Angular Banner die cut I stamped the "YOU ARE" from the Sweet stamp set.
  • The "FRIEND" that was stamp along the L comes from the Friends Like You stamp set (I masked off the S from FRIENDS) I then heat set the letters using a black embossing powder.
  • And the AWESOME comes from the Special Teacher set. 
  • Once the cards were assembled, I then added some glossy accents to just the "GIRL" letters.

On the inside of the cards I used a couple of other stamps to create the birthday greeting.
  • I chose the HAPPY from the Best Parent stamp set because the font was similar to the one I used on the front.
  • I then paired it with a cursive Birthday sentiment that comes from the Lily the Lamb set.

I love mixing and matching my stamp and die sets and using them to come up with totally different designs. I hope my cards today have inspired you to customise your cards.

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
