There are great tried and true techniques that I love to revisit. One of them is the direct-to-paper technique that I used to create the slimline card pictured below. The happy birthday stamps from the Biggest Wish stamp set were the perfect finishing touch for the card. The sentiments were added in an over stamping technique.
I think these colors are perfect for a masculine card. And, I certainly struggle with making cards that are specifically designed for men. (It’s so much easier to make a card with a pretty flower scene…) 🙂
The direct-to-paper effect is highlighted in the picture below. I really love how the colors blend and are created so easily.
The over stamped section is shown below. It is so easy to make your stamps perfectly aligned with the Stamparatus! These sentiments could easily be added to a regular A2 sized card in the exact same pattern.
Click on the video below to see the full instructions (and some tips and tricks) for making this card. And, change the color scheme and embellishments to make the card for just about anyone!
The main products that I used to create this card are shown below. If you click on any picture, you’ll go directly to my online store. The Biggest Wish stamp set is definitely one that you should consider adding to your stash. I really is fun to use!
Until next time…
