I am needing at least half a dozen birthday cards in the weeks to come, so it’s no surprise that I have another birthday card today. This time it is a masculine birthday card.
I usually keep masculine cards pretty minimal, and yet these cards can be difficult to do. Go figure. However, this card was simple to do. I applied distress inks on the upper portion of a white piece of cardstock. Of course I chose masculine colors. I made sure the inks were dry before stamping the Fireworks with VersaMark ink. Next I covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set it.
Using the emboss resist technique, I applied black ink to the entire white piece. Once done, I took a tissue and removed the excess ink from the embossed images. I heat embossed the sentiment with Sparkly Gold embossing powder. I wanted this black panel to really pop, so I used the same sparkly embossing powder to heat emboss the edges of a slightly larger piece of white cardstock. I layered them together and adhered it all to a split black/white card base.
