I had to make a manly birthday card recently. I decided to keep it clean and simple!
I used a mustache border stamp to make the background.
The sentiment stamp is from There She Goes clear stamps "Sentimental Birthday".
I used oval nestabilities to die cut the sentiment... Yes... I had to stamp it twice, I didn't leave enough card stock around the first stamped image to die cut.
I used my cuttlebug to dry emboss the oval.
I used an embossing buddy on a piece of kraft card stock to get rid of any static.
I stamped three rows of the mustache stamp using versamark, and then covered it with black embossing powder.
I used my heat gun to emboss the mustaches.
I attached the sentiment to the card and voila! A clean, simple, manly birthday card!
