My nephew celebrated his 19th birthday a few weeks ago and this past weekend we were finally able to have him over. Friday evening Taygan asked me if I planned to work in my stamp room and I told her that I did because I wanted to get a card made for Shawn for Saturday. She told me that was what she wanted to do as well. So off we went to the stamp room and we got down to business.
On my drive home from work I started working on a card in my mind. I wanted to create a more masculine card using the Woodgrain background stamp that I just ordered in. So I set to work and whipped up this sweet card that I had already created in my head.
The base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Chocolate Chip cardstock stamped in Chocolate Chip with the Woodgrain background stamp.
The Happy Birthday stamp from the Level 3 set Occasional Quotes, is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Vanilla cardstock. I lightly sponged around the edges of this piece to make it stand out more. I layered this onto a mat of Cajun Craze cardstock and attached to my card front.
Using the Two Step Bird punch, I punched out the stem from Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the Owl to perch himself on.
This card was so quick and easy and I love how it turned out. Nothing too fancy for a male. :)
Thanks for looking.
