Masculine birthday cards are always a struggle for me. There so many images for females, both young and old, but not many for a male. I found this very fun stamp set and die from My Favorite Things, Birds of Paradise. I wanted to do a little something different with this card. I wanted to layer some of the images to make them “pop” from the card.
I created the background using Distress Inks of sky and water. The sand was created using my Copic markers.
I stamped and cut out the images a second time, colored them the same as the first using my Copic markers and then cut out parts of the birds and palm trees. I popped them up using dimensionals. I think it worked pretty well. Some glossy accents to their eyes added some interst.
One final look…
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, Birthday Bits.
Gorgeous colours, so pretty xo Julie P
