Male Card

I always hate having to make cards for males as I find it so difficult to find elements that are masculine and not sport or cars and was so glad when I saw the JustRite Going Places Vintage Labels stamps being demonstrated by Sue Wilson.  I had seen Sam Poole show a card using the background stamp and the letters and decided to put the two together to make my card.

I stamped the background onto white card with Versacolor black using the U-Mount Newsprint A6 Rubber Stamp by Sam Poole and mounted this onto black and then white card. I then stamped 'Happy Birthday' onto cream card with Versacolor Sepia using Clear Vintage Alphabet A5 Stamp by Sam Poole. I cut out the words separately and went round the edges with a mixture of Brushed Corduroy and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. I then mounted this onto the background.

I stamped the image from the JustRite Going Places Vintage Labels in Memento Rich Cocoa and then coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and mounted onto the card to finish.
