Masculine birthday card

Happy birthday to my sweet gramps! 


My Creative Time's newest stamp and die sets are perfect for masculine cards. I love the glasses and 'staches! All the stamps for the background are from Here's Lookin' at You; glasses and mustache dies are from the What's Growing On set.


Can you see the lenses in the glasses? I used clear die packaging to make 'real' lenses then stamped under them using the What's Growing On set. The remainder of my sentiment, "....you haven't aged a bit," is computer generated.


Product List:
My Creative Time, What's Growing On
My Creative Time, Here's Looking at You
Pattern papers by My Mind's Eye
Burlap by Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Ink, clear plastic, cardstock, foam tape, hemp twine

Thanks for coming by the studio today. I'm late getting this card in the mail, but I'm sure Gramps will be thrilled regardless. :)

  2. Eek! I know it's supposed to be masculine, but I think it's still so super duper cute! I love the colors and the added touch of the burlap. And how the glasses look 3-dimensional with the lenses! You are such an inspiration!

    Thanks so much for sharing!
