Good Morning! Today I have a simple Masculine Birthday Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish photopolymer stamp set. I paired it with the In Good Taste designer series paper which I totally love because it has so many textures such as the concrete and elegant dark wood that I used on today’s card. And it’s on sale now for a 15% discount!! Yay!! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I used my Stamparatus to help stamp the sentiments on the panel of concrete In Good Taste designer series paper. I wanted an ombre gray look in my sentiments that I achieved with Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Tuxedo Memento Black inks. I lined up the Happy sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish stamp set in my Stamparatus so that I could move the plate up the hinges and the words would line up straight. I stamped the bottom Happy in Gray Granite twice and stamped off Memento Tuxedo Black, the middle in Smoky Slate twice and the top one is in stamped off Smoky Slate several times.
I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with black embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny and it gives me a dark, shiny raised sentiment to finish my ombre effect. I adhered the panel to a Basic Gray mat with liquid glue.
I adhered the dark woodgrain strip of In Good Taste DSP to a Basic Gray Mat so that the mat showed on one side. I adhered the strip to the concrete stamped panel and wrapped it twice with black twine, tying it in a knot to secure it. I added three large Bronze Brushed Metallic dots from the new Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog (available August 3) and popped the panel on the front of an Early Espresso card base.
For the inside of the card, I stamped sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the concrete In Good Taste DSP. I adhered the panel to a Basic Gray mat and then adhered it to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish stamp set is so versatile and can be used for so many different occasions. And large strong sentiments like the ones in this set are perfect for masculine cards!
