Hi, today is Manly Monday over on the My Creative Time Blog. I have manly, yet cute, birthday card. Who says they can't be both?
For the base of my card, I used the fabulous Stitched Square Dies Inside and Out. I added a strip at the bottom of the card using the Belly Band Dies. Next, I used the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies to create a window in the front of the card.
I stamped the adorable little elephant and cut it out using the coordinating die from the Hello Baby Stamp Set. I colored the ears and feet in with a Copic marker. I also used a white gelly roll pen to fill in the tusk and feet. I stamped the little hat using the Prehistoric Holidays Stamp Set and then cut it out by hand. I added a little silver star to the top of the hat using a die also from the Hello Baby Stamp Set. I then pop-dotted it onto the white circle inside the card.
I added the "happy birthday" to the belly band strip using the Happy Everthing Stamp Set. I stamped the birthday on using Versamark Ink along with Recollection's Snow Embossing Powder. Then I accented it with three stars that were cut out using the 4x4 Journal Dies and More.
