Masculine One Layer (BONUS post for Stencil Sunday)

Hello friends!

I am popping in to share an extra stenciled one layer card that I created.
Today also marks the Altenew July new stamps and dies release (see here).

Cube Builder (Altenew here, Simon Says Stamp here)

The entire release from June can be found here.

Since I am taking a summer break, I will not be part of this blog hop (wahhhh....I know).😐
However, I still want to share something with you from Altenew.
So, here we go.

Happy Birthday

 The "hardest" part of this card is using the stencil and create the background. 
 Be sure to use a piece of paper to cover the surface while you apply the inks. This way prevent you from getting smudges (ask how I know...). 

happy birthday (2)

Once that's all done, I gold-emboss the cactus from "Be Strong" and stamped the sentiment from Cake Love...done!

Fabulous masculine card, Virginia! But, if I'm honest, I wouldn't mind getting a card like that myself! ;)
