The big Four O

Posted by Jeannette on 19 March 2009

It was my OH’s birthday last week, and a big one at that. Now I know I’m not alone here when it comes to making mens cards, but I find them really hard. And obviously I’m not very good at funny cards either, but there you are. This is the card I gave him, he did laugh though.
Both lines of the sentiment are actually at the bottom of the stamp but I masked parts of the stamp when I inked it up

Supplies Used:
1. Papers – SU! Bashful Blue Designer Papers
2. Card – SU! Brocade Blue Card
3. Image – SU! Golden Oldies (Mini Catalogue)
4. Ribbon – SU! Bashfull Blue Striped Grosgrain (MC)
5. Other – Chipboard from stash
6. Medium – SU Stampin’ Write Markers

    This is such a fun card, it made me giggle. Bet OH loved it, Happy Birthday to him. Love the ribbon on it.

    I have not heard of ‘masking’ the stamp before and am intrigued as to what you use to do this. This would be so useful with a few of my stamps. Do you just stick sellotape to it?
