Nailed It Z Fold Card

Nailed It Birthday Card

By | Birthday Cards, Cards for Men, Techniques | No Comments

It must be masculine week because today I have another “guy card” to share with you. For the February One Sheet Wonder Card Club I stamped my own background of tools from the Nailed It stamp set. Very basic, just Basic Gray ink on Smoky Slate card stock.

Sometimes you have just a narrow strip of patterned paper that you can’t bring yourself to throw away. That’s how cards like this happen… Whisper White: 2-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ Striped Paper: 3/4″ x 5″ Dapper Denim: 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ When you use a fish stamp you almost have to pair it with the Seaside embossing folder.

Can you ever send enough thank you cards? I think not. It reminds me of this quote… “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” – William Arthur Ward So yesterday when our church hosted a craft and chat I made lots and lots of thank you cards. Crafting with other people is fun but often I chat more than I craft. This time I was prepared. The day before I took some thank you cards I had designed and cut a whole bunch of card stock to make them. I also stamped my…

Stylized Birthday Card

By | Birthday Cards, Cards, Cards for Men | No Comments

The Stylized Birthday stamp is perfect for birthday cards to give to anyone. The handwritten font makes it look nice on flowery cards or on cards that are a little more manly like this one. Plus it’s just a nice big size! Dapper Denim card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ Very Vanilla: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ Striped paper: 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ cut on the diagonal Doesn’t that balloon look realistic?!? I used the Chalk Marker to add a little highlight to the right side of it. Then I sponged a little Mint Macaron ink on the left side of it to…
