Manly Birthday Card with Timeless Textures

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Manly Birthday Card with Timeless Textures

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Manly Birthday Card with Timeless Textures Side Profile

Aren’t men’s cards just so hard to do? It’s easy to go the stereotypical route of cars/bikes/trains etc, but the reality is, most of the men in my family aren’t into that. So what do you do if your menfolk are like mine?

You throw out some splodges and add a sentiment, that’s what!

Timeless Textures, much like Gorgeous Grunge, is a great set for just that – you get to stamp, layer, pick colours to suit them, but without it being overblown and too ‘girly’ for them…

I went with Lost Lagoon, Night of Navy, Island Indigo and Pool Party for my card, but you could choose any of their favourite colours. Although, do men have favourite colours? Or just colours the subconsciously lean towards….. hmmm….

Anyway, with the base in Lost Lagoon, 2 layers of Whisper White and the other blues, I decided to stamp my Suite Sayings wording in Night of Navy for contrast. So with manly birthdays aplenty coming up, I have one more for my stockpile…

Have a great day everyone!
