Today I have a masculine birthday card to show you. The card was made by stamping the Newsprint Cupcake stamp (Hero Arts) in verasmark ink onto sticky back canvas and then embossing with clear embossing powder. I then applied one of the new distress stains - Salty Ocean over the top and let it dry. I also stamped my card base with the Envelope pattern background stamp (Hero Arts). The little flag is by Maya Road and I added a sticker from the Spotted Owl Soup Collection (Jillbean Soup) on top. I added another sticker from the same collection to the cupcake and also to tuck at the top of the card. Some stitching, a twine bow, a button and my favourite embellishment for masculine cards and layouts - the Mini Paperclips by Tim Holtz finished off the card.
If you would like to see a totally different project using the new distress stains you can check out this tag on my blog.
I will be back later in the week with some off the page projects and a scrapbook layout featuring my middle boy. Thanks for stopping by,
