Happy Birthday (Bubble Over)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, yesterday my Brother-In-Law celebrated his 50th birthday (Happy Birthday, Ben) and so I had to make a card to celebrate.  Like many people, I struggle with making masculine cards so I was unsure at first in which direction to go.  I decided to use blue and silver as my main colour theme.  I die cut the numerals ‘5’ and ‘0’ and a ‘Happy birthday‘ from silver sheets but the look just didn’t appeal.   In the end, I grabbed an older, but still current, stamp Bubble Over and die set, Bottles and Bubbles,  and decided to go with a more casual look.

Here’s the Card…

You might realise that the bottles haven’t stamped absolutely perfectly.  I was okay with that.  To my eye, it gave the bottles the appearance of dimension as if the light was bouncing off the bottle.

I used the new, and totally awesome, Well Written stamp set and coordinating die set (also available as a bundle for a discounted price) for the sentiment.  I have to say I LOVE the dies in particular.  They are so fantastic!

The one thing I used which might surprise you is the paper from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP.  Whilst it is a baby themed paper, the navy is great for any kind of masculine card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!
