I needed a manly birthday card this week for my Brother. He is a nightmare when it comes to birthdays (or any other present buying occasion!) and often asks for things like socks! So this year, he got socks… because my brain does not have the energy or the space to think of something else! Nor does it have the time to design a fabulous card for him… I know it’s bad, but really when it comes to guys cards, I’m of the opinion that simple is better anyway.
Sam is really into music, so using the Sheet Music background stamp is always a pretty safe jumping off point for his card. However, I apparently didn’t clean it very well they last time I used it, because my Crumb Cake image has patches of red! However, I really quite like the look… so I rolled with it!
I try to make a big thing of the sentiment on guys birthday cards, particularly when they are simple like this one. One of my favourite sentiment stamp sets at the moment is Itty Bitty Birthdays; it has a selection of great sentiments for Birthdays and celebrations, and I particularly like this bold Happy Birthday. Here it’s stamped in Early Espresso and punched using the Classic Label Punch.
To add a little something to the sentiment I also added Classic Labels in Pacific Point and Call Me Clover to finish the card.
