Masculine Birthday

Pin It
Hi everyone,

We have sunshine today but cool. Today's card is using the SU By the Tide set. What a great set for masculine cards. The base is staples 110 cs. I decided to review it and it is fabulous and very sturdy. I used my Micheal half price coupon. It is smooth and stamps well. The top layer is a basil CS. I have used most of the stamps in the set for the background using archival black ink.  The 2nd layer is staples 65 lb cs. I used the block by adding the ink on the block and spritzed with water. That was a hard part for me, I have OCD with the messy look but  just kept going even when I wanted to start over. Then I stamped  images of the sea horse one on white the other on velum. I also stamped the circle stamp on the layer. The velum was stamped with chocolate brown and turned it to the backside and popped up with dimentionals. The banner is a scrap piece and the stamp used is SU Well Scripted. I put the card together but still not sure I like it.  I have decided to leave it up to you people my lovely followers to help me with the decision. 

Thank you for stopping in and have a fabulous fun day!

I agree, perfect stamp set for masculine cards (and I know I struggle making those... I need all the help I can get, if only men liked flowers, ribbon and sparkle life would be so much easier lol) Great choice of colours too!
