Cardz4Guyz Challenge #276- Shades of Blue- Very Easy Masculine Card

This card shows a breathtaking scene that is very easy to create for the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #276-Shades of Blue. The scene is from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper from the 2021-22 Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog. The sentiment is from the Shaded Summer stamp set.

The completed scene is created by using the Evergreen Border Punch and the Majestic Mountain Dies. So simple!

This is such a great card to give to thank the man in your life for going above and beyond for you.

Masculine Sailing Home Birthday Card

Hello! I hope you all are staying well. If you are working at home during this Coronavirus Pandemic, I hope you are taking some time for fun and relaxation. Look ahead and see who has a Birthday coming up. My Brother In Law has a birthday at the beginning of April. I decided to go ahead and make his card today.

This is a really quick and simple card. I used the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home and High Tide Stamp sets for the sea images, and the Itty Bitty Birthdays for the sentiment. Click on the title of the stamp set to go to the online store and view it.

Measurements: Whisper White cardstock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches; Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 1/2 x 2 3/8 inches; Night of Navy: 4 1/8 x 3 3/8 inches and Seaside Spray CS: 4 x 3 1/2 inches.

The first step is to stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in Night Of Navy ink onto the 4 x 3 1/2 inch piece of Seaside Spray CS. Stamp towards the bottom and in the center.

Cover the sentiment with sticky note tape. This is a mask. Stamp the lighthouse and the sail boat in the Night Of Navy ink.

Use the waves image stamp from the High Tide stamp set to make it appear that the sail boat is in water.

Lastly, stamp the seagulls from the High Tide stamp set onto the upper right hand corner. If you want fewer seagulls, there is a similar stamp in the Sailing Home set but there are only 3 birds.

Let dry then remove the mask. Adhere the stamped piece to the 4 1/8 x 3 3/8 inch Night of Navy CS piece.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the card piece.

Use the Bone Folder to get a nice crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch scoreline on the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of Whisper White CS. Adhere the Come Sail Away DSP piece to the front of the card base, slightly to the left side.

And there you have a really nice card. But, I wanted to add a little something to give it more panache.

I tied a small piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine on the anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets and attached it to the card with a glue dot.

Viola! You have a great masculine birthday card! That was a fast one!

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you get a chance to make some birthday cards for you friends and family. Nothing says “I care about you” like a homemade card or gift!
