Masculine Digital Birthday Card

Using cool tools like My Digital Studio and the Simply Scored scoring pad with the matching card stock makes it quick and easy to  create this extra special masculine birthday card.  I was able to print four backgrounds on one sheet of card stock, allowing for quick duplication!The background is created in My Digital Studio which was layered on Early Espresso card stock.  The colors for the card were selected from the colors in the digital version of the Well Worn designer paper.  The sentiment was stamped with Not Quite Navy and the banner was cut from Cajun Craze card stock then adherred with dimensionals in the middle.  This banner is easy to create with the Simply Scored scoring tool.  Just line your tag up to the top of the scoring pad and score on each side, then score again 1/8″ from your first score lines.  Now that you have your card stock scored fold it to create your banner.  Then punch your flag ends with the corner of your 1″ square punch. This background was inspired by a card I saw which used punched designer paper circles in a pattern similar to this.  I created the same background in My Digital Studio with digital punches and papers.

This is the card I sent to my son-in-law for his birthday. I changed it up a bit. I punched the sentiment out with the large oval punch.   And I layered the background design on Not Quite Navy card stock.

Stunning Love

“Stunning!”  That’s how a friend described the background of this card at my stamp camp on Tuesday.  And those stunning results are easily achieved with the Finial Press Textured Embossing folder.  The same embossing folder was used to create the Cherry Cobbler heart.    After punching it out the the textured cardstock with the large heart punchthe heart’s surface was run across a white craft pad to create the contrast.

The old style large heart punch AND scallop oval punch are currently on clearance while supplies last.  Click the clearance button on the far sidebar to see additional bargains!  And remember the SAB Outlined Occasions stamp set featured here is FREE with a qualifying order until March 31st.

The Love tag was created with the scallop oval punch and the extra large oval punch.  Love was punched with the scallop oval punch and then layered on top of the large oval punch.  Then I punched a scallop oval of Cherry Cobbler clipped it in half and adherred it under the tag hanging out on the ends with brads to decorate it.

The black gingham ribbon is no longer available but the 1/8″ black taffeta ribbon is a great alternative!
