One Layer Masculine Card

Hello friends! 
Here is a little infomercial for ya....
"Do you struggle with making masculine cards?
You need a birthday card .... like pronto!? 
AND you need to mail it ASAP? 
Well, look no more!
This masculine card is the answer!"
(insert a cheeky smile--> 😁)

Poetic (Penny Black) comes to the rescue!
( I apologize that this stamp is currently out of stock over SSS.)
HERE are the latest release from Penny Black! Do you have a favorite already?

This is one of the many that I adore...

have a fabulous birthday

I like to do multi-color stamping with MISTI. Starting with the lighter colors seem to be the key for me. I like to add shade of darker colors once I am happy with the initial inking. While the Distress Oxide was still wet, clear-embossing worked really well in this card, too.

have a fabulous birthday

I also stamped the background with the awesome "Script" Cling stamp. This stamp is a great arsenal to add extra interest to your stamped design.  Happy to report that I created within half an hour.
So, there's your masculine one layer birthday card.

 Use code RGR4493
This is a great chance to get the Distress Oxide if you have not already (click here).

Thanks for stopping by!
PS: The party of 40 (in celebration of my daughter's successful PhD defense) went so well that I think I might do it again...perhaps not for a while though.

Beautifully the colors but the composition is what I love most. This one could go either way, feminine or masculine.
So happy to here your HUGE party went off without a hitch. I'd be exhausted after all those preparations and people but you still sound like your perky. Wish I had your energy.

I've been eyeing this stamp as it's unusual yet lovely. Your script stamping adds just the right touch and your color choice is superb!!!
