Masculine Sailing Home Birthday

Sailing Home Masculine Birthday Card

Isn’t it amazing just how difficult it can be to create a masculine birthday card?  Well, I’m here to help!  Whether they love the sea or not, this Masculine Sailing Home Birthday card is perfect for that special guy in your life. 

First, I like how the three Layering Oval die-cuts highlight the Smooth Sailing lighthouse die. Second,  the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder evokes the feeling of ocean waves. Finally, the Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Silver Foil, and Basic White cardstock combine for an overall masculine look.  This card is not only attractive but also quick and easy.

I love that the Sailing Home stamp set includes an image of a “Reef Knot”.  I stamped it on the inside of my card along with a “Happy Birthday” sentiment.  Are you ready to create your own Masculine Sailing Home Birthday card?  Watch my video, click on the product links below to purchase the necessary supplies, and go make one for your special fella.

I love everything floral!  Fresh flowers, pictures of flowers, floral sheets, floral quilts, and much more.  Especially flower stamps, dies, and designer series paper. My Floral Happy Birthday card has it all.

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You Card

There is nothing better than going to your mailbox and finding a handmade card.  Wouldn’t you love to receive this A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card?  Which, by the way, you can choose as your Sale-a-bration gift with a $100 purchase.  Who doesn’t love a gift with purchase—I know I certainly do.

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card

As you can see from looking around my blog, I love butterflies. So, I was especially pleased when this set contained a beautiful side view butterfly.  I truly wish, Stampin’ Up! would include more side view butterflies in their stamp sets. Sometimes, you want to place them on a flower, and the full-on butterfly doesn’t seem to work quite as well. 

Have you tried the Stampin’ Up! Blends alcohol markers? Wow, they are so easy to use, and you get amazing results with minimal effort.  Be sure to check out my video below for some hints to great coloring.

Hopefully, you are now inspired to create your own A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card.
