True Gentleman Personalized Birthday Card

How to Make a Personalized Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

It's hard to believe that my baby boy just turned 28!  Of course, such a momentous occasion calls for a handmade card, because that's what I do!   Bryan is a Forester so I used the Seasonal Layers Dies along with the Large Numbers die to make a personalized Birthday Card just for him.

Bryan is my son with a ready smile.  I snapped this picture of him when we were in the midst of making Maple Syrup.  Happy Birthday, Bryan!


Personalized Birthday Card

I love this sentiment stamp from the Number of years stamp set.  It sums up how I feel about Bryan.  And the True Gentleman Designer Paper has such a masculine feel.  It's a sure fire win for cards for the guys.  If you find yourself having a hard time coming up with ideas for making masculine cards, try starting with a good masculine paper.

How to Make a Funny Masculine Card

Birthday Wit Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

I'm back with another masculine card.  Actually, today's birthday card could probably be considered gender neutral.  The stamps, design and color could go either way.  I used the Birthday Wit stamp set to provide the humor and the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp set to place the candles on top.  It's really a very easy card to make.

 Because I stamped with the the Birthday Wit everything free stamp  3 times, once each with Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist inks, it would be super, duper easy to make 3 cards guys birthday cards in record time.  Simple stamp, then cut and puzzle the pieces onto 3  card fronts.  I used Eastern Palace Designer Paper as my first layer on a Very Vanilla Card base.  I use the same 3 colors and the Picture Perfect Party stamp set to stamp the candles on top.
