Inspire.Create.Challenge 048 Sailing Home Birthday

Hey folks! It’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge, and this time we have a very handy theme…. Birthdays! We all need birthday cards, and hopefully it’s the card you make/send most often.

Male birthday card using Sailing Home from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I made this card for one of my brother’s-in-law at the end of June using the Sailing Home stamp set and coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, and all in Night of Navy and White.

One of my top tips for making male birthday cards is to keep things simple, and will often stick to a couple of colours, or use a lot of white space.

How to make a simple birthday card for a man using the Come Sail Away suite from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

One of the things I really LOVE about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination. You know, that the ink, card stock and Designer Series Paper are all the same colour, the white’s match and the stamps fit perfectly into basic shape dies. There are a few die sets at work here; the Layering Square and Stitched Shapes work together to make lovely layers on your cards, and I LOVE that we now have a heap of word dies to create interesting looking sentiments.

The Birthday is die cut using the Well Written dies. I actually die cut this 3 times from Night of Navy card stock and stacked them to get this fun dimensional effect.

There are more Birthday card’s over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog this week, do pop over and check them out, create your own birthday creation and add it to our gallery. We can’t wait to see them!
