"Fore" Your Birthday

Guy cards. Not always easy. Am I right? Well, this one IS easy. I promise! And only one layer, so no extra postage. No muss, no fuss. Perfect for your guy!

When ya start with a great stamp, or two, ya end up with a great card. I used Golf Club Patent and Donuts Happy Birthday to pair up for a great guy card. Using an A2 card base, I simply lined up the background stamp in the MISTI and stamped twice with Ink On 3 Fade-Out Ink. I've discovered this ink, which is designed for no-line coloring, works fabulously as a subtle background color. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Ink (Dandelion), then I highlighted the letters with the awesome metallic and glitter pens from the Kaisercraft Gel Pen Set of 48. If you've never tried these gel pens before, you don't know what you're missing. They go on like "buttah"! (I'm a little in love with them!) A little washi tape on the corner of the card finished it off nicely and in a "manly" kind of way. lol

Did you know that Technique Junkies carried all this cool stuff? You should check it out! Stamps, Inks, Stencils, Markers and more! And you can save a cool 10% any day of the week by using the code "TJ10Ro" at checkout. How sweet is that?!

Well, I'm off to whip up a few more of these masculine cards for my stash. Hope you found some inspiration today!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!
