Manly Cards SSNOTIME156

It's September and I need some Masculine Birthday cards! Manly, Masculine, Guy thing - No bows, no flowery stuff, no frills. OK, fine then. No pressure, should be easy, and flat. Here's what I came up with - 1 stamp, 3 different cards using different papers and other non-frilly stuff. Funny thing, after I made these, I see that this is the theme for Stamp Simply this week!

The Tree stamped image filled the largest die I had. For the border circles, I was able to make the circle the size I needed by tracing the outside of the largest die then cutting just outside of that line with my deckle edged scissors (and erasing the line when done).

Stamps: Inkadinkado-Utopiary, Hero Arts-Happy Birthday (tag), Stampabilities-Happy Birthday
Ink: ClearSnap ColorBox Chalk Ink-Chestnut Roan Paper: DCWV The Fall matstack (from previous 2 yrs)
Accessories: McGill-tag punch, Martha Stewart-ZigZag border punch, EKSuccess-corner rounder punch; Deckle edge scissors, Spellbinders Classic Circle, Ribbon, Brads

  1. Good job on all three. I like the colors and the tree stamp and your idea on enlarging the circle die to fit the tree - N E A T !!!
