Happy Birthday to You - AAA Cards Game #76

Hello everyone,

We are back with Game #76 - Masculine Cards.  See end of post for details. 

This is always something I struggle with when making cards.  I was to keep adding sparkles and glitter.  

I love fall and I really love making cards with fall colours. I took the latest SSS card kit and used the leaves and berries in the set as well as the two little ink cubes. I used first and second generation stamping to give it some interest.  I cut out a small piece, about 1.5 inches and adhered it to my card base.

Originally I was trying to do in directly on to my card base. I masked it off and everything but the ink was so wet that it went right through the post it tape and made a mess of the card so I cut it out and added it to another card base

I took the sentiment from the SSS Stamptember release "You Matter" and stamped the happy birthday to with intense black ink and die cut the You out of the burnt orange cards stock that also came in the kit.  

We hope you'll join us with our challenge.  We love seeing what you created.

  1. That huge die cut is just amazing! Love the combo of large and small words and the strip across has super colours.

  2. Perfect stamping and masking and that die is the star x

  3. I LOVE this card. I am going to have to CASE it. Love the colors you chose. Love the images inside your masked strip. Love that YOU, which I own, and now I am going to CASE this!.

  4. This card is stunning. Just perfect. Good 'unisex' card. I really want that die, and it's always out of stock!!!

  5. Love this for a masculine card. Your color choices are spot on, and good job in resisting the urge to glitter (I have that urge too!)

  6. I'm loving this neat and chic design Coralynn. The bold 'you' is perfect and a fun and right on trend colour combo for fall! Would work for loads of occasions but guy-gorgeous here! x
