Men's Big Birthday

Hi Everyone, 

I hope you are all well. I have a quick card project for you today, this is one I made for a very special BIG birthday. I know it's super hard to make male cards as we are always drawn to the colours, patterns, embellishments we like (aka girls things). So I am really happy with how this one turned out. 

This project is also great for new years, christmas and can be used for any occasion or any gender really. It's neutral which makes if versitile. I know we all need cards for different occasions so just swap out the sentiments and main image and boom! You have an anything card!

 

Here's my supply list -

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY CONVERSION MEASUREMENTS ARE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TO THE EXACT CONVERSION IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PROJECT EASIER TO MAKE. :-)

The card is basic black in a standard 4X6 inch (10cmX15cm) base. I have layered whisper white under the vellum and hidden the glue dots under the black stripes on the vellum so you can't see them when looking. I find the whisper white layer underneath really makes the vellum POP on this design. The vellum and whisper white on the basic black base measures 3.5X5.5 inch (9cmX14cm). 

My second whisper white layer was 2X5.5 inch (5cmX14cm). The second vellum was 1.5X5.5 inch (4cmX14cm). Again I have hidden the glue dots with the black stripes. I used dimentionals on the whisper white and I used snail on the first two layers. 

I used a random piece of whisper white I had left over and used the envelope punch board to create the indents on all 4 corners. I created a template of the number 5 and 0. I then stuck them to the white piece with a small amount of snail. I sponged over the numbers with basic grey and pulled off the template numbers, leaving the outline as seen in the pictures. 

I stamped 'happy birthday' from the teeny tiny sentiments onto some whisper white and punched it out with the word window. I then sponged the edges with basic grey. I simply attached that to the small white 50 with washi tape. I used dimentionals to attached the white 50 to the second piece of vellum. I added an enamel dot to the bottom corner as well.

My inside whisper white layer was the same as my bas whisper white on the front. 3.5X5.5 inch (9cmX14cm). I then stamped the same happy birthday, added some washi tape to the bottom corner and an enamel dot. 

I hope you like this project! I also hope our Uncle likes it! 

Much love
