I wanted to make a more masculine card, hard for someone who automatically reaches for sequin and butterflies lol.
I used Basic Gray ink with a new stamp from My Favorite Things, Cheesecloth. I love this stamp and I think like all the other background stamps from MFT it will be versatile and be well used.
I stamped my Typewriter Text stamp, MFT, in Pool Party and die cut this using a Die-namics Pierced Tag die. I also die cut a Daffodil Delight circle using a Dienamics Zig Zag Circle die. Foam Dimentionals were added to this to create layering.
I used the Hello You die set to make the 'happy' and used black Bazzill card stock for this. I then used my Rotary stamp from Stampin' Up! to stamp 'birthday' and layered this with white card to make the banners. All these were layered together to create the card. I found it difficult not to add a butterfly but I still had to add some embellishments so chose sequin from Teresa Collins Urban Market collection in grey and black and white.
I hope you have enjoyed this card. Why not head over to the and check out other cards using this colour combo.
