SHC - Masculine Birthday Cards

... Morning! It's time for my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. This week I have a couple of masculine themed cards to share with you. Here's the first:

Stamps: Altenew - Just a Number; Mama Elephant - Easy Sentiments
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze
Dies: Altenew - Just a Number
Accessories: A6 Grey Notecard; Altenew - Geo Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder

I'm submitting this to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#66 where it is always Anything Goes. I'm also submitting this to Seize the Birthday - STB#230 where they want to see embossing!

This card was so quick and easy to make. I placed a piece of white card into the 3D embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. I love the simplicity of the design. I trimmed the panel to fit on the front of a UK A6 grey notecard. To finish the front I stamped the 'happy birthday' greeting onto white card and used the matching die to cut out the words. I layered them onto plain white die cuts and added them to the card. This is a simple masculine CAS card. Inside, I cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the notecard and added several birthday greetings in blue ink.

My next card is also quite clean and simple:

Stamps: Altenew - Birthday Builder; Mama Elephant - Mixed Wishes Greetings; C&9 - Playful Patterns
Inks: Gina K - Blue Lagoon, Blue Denim, Christmas Pine, Wild Lilac; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Accessories: White & Kraft Card; Altenew Block Stencil; Copic Markers

I used Stencil 2 from the Block stencil pack to create the pattern on kraft card. It is not quite perfect, but I like it. I cut a piece of white card to 3" x 4¼" to allow some of the background to show around the edge. I added an outline birthday greeting and coloured the letters with Copic markers. I added a dotty pattern and lightly ink blended around the white card. Inside, the card I cut a mat layer of kraft card and on the white panel I stamped a birthday greeting and some more dots.

Well, that's all the cards for January made. I don't need quite so many for Februay, but those that I do are for special birthdays! That's it for today. See you soon.
