Masculine Birthday Card with Surprising (and Retiring) Stamps

Surprising Masculine Birthday Card

Welcome back and happy Friday! I left you in suspense on Wednesday with a teaser about two retiring stamp sets you wouldn’t think of for a masculine birthday card. Let’s see if you guessed!

Today’s card features the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the ‘Rose Wonder’ stamp set and an inside greeting from the ‘Wild About Flowers’ stamp set. Two floral stamp sets you wouldn’t think of for a masculine birthday card! See how you can get a lot of versatility from your stamps by thinking outside the box???

The ‘Rose Wonder’ stamp set has been a favorite of mine since it came out. Mostly because of the awesome sentiments. It covers several different occasion with sentiments for the front, as well as the inside of cards in lovely mixed fonts. I am really gonna miss this one and highly recommend you grab it before it retires! It also coordinates with the retiring ‘Rose Garden’ Thinlets Die set.

The second stamp set ‘Wild About Flowers’ is primarily for retirement cards, but the font and sentiment  just seemed to go for a masculine birthday card! Agree??? This is another versatile set that will be missed!

Savvy Tip

The new Tailored Tag Punch was used to frame the ‘Happy Birthday sentiment, but it can also be used to make the banner notch on the accent layers. Turn it upside down, center paper and punch! Now take those scraps and add them to the inside greeting panel for a punch of color and directional focus. Versatile and no waste!:)

Creative Options

Recognize this card? A while back, I shared a masculine retirement card and actually made this card at the same time. I had everything out already, so I just grabbed different stamps to create a birthday version. It’s sooo easy to create multiples of a design just by switching up the stamps and/or paper! You’ll find the card with instructions and tips HERE.
