Quick and Simple Masculine Birthday card
Hello everyone and thank you so much for joining me!! I have a quick and simple masculine birthday card to share with you so let's jump right in!! I did use my Cricut to cut out the balloon image but there is a die that would make a similar card.
I cut the balloon image out using three of Simon Says Stamps cardstocks, Ivory, Fog, and Island blue using my Cricut and an image from Design Space but there is a die set from Concord & 9th that would work very similarly. As I always prefer, I cut down my cardstock before I began, I have an A2 sized base with a black matte 1/8 inch smaller than my base and my panel is 1/8 inch smaller than my black matte.
I used a cloud stencil from My Favorite things, a blending tool from Scrapbook, and Tumbled Glass Oxide ink to create a background for my balloon. I adhered the layers of my balloon together with some Nuvo Deluxe glue and adhered my panels down. I used the Concord & 9th Happy Balloon Dies for the string coming off my balloon and cut it out of SSS fog cardstock and added that to my card.
I didn't like how the tail looked when I added it on top of my balloon so I did add a couple of Moonstone sequins, you can tell me if you think that it still qualifies as a masculine card as I did add some sequins. If you want to watch an in-depth look at my card please check out the full video tutorial below.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you again very soon !!
