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…
