Masculine Birthday

Happy Thursday from my Studio to yours! Recently I was catching up on my Birthday and Anniversary cards. I keep them already made and addressed about 2 months ahead at a time. I mail them out every Monday. I have been doing this for YEARS and it’s a system that works well for me. Ever the anal retentive, I also have a note every Monday in my Planner that says ‘Mail Cards’. Crazy right? But I rarely am I ever late celebrating my Friends & Family.

The stamp I am showing you today can be purchased two ways. As part of a set in clear polymer and as a single with a sentiment in digital. I used the digital version, but put both in the shopping list for you. This one was super fun to color. Marcella of Power Poppy always shows where the shading is, making the coloring almost fool proof! I also enjoyed finding a group of colors that would flow together, while keeping it masculine.

You have probably noticed that I usually always heat emboss my sentiments. I feel like that way they don’t look faded and it gives them a bit of texture that makes them stand out.

This was just so fun to color. The possibilities are endless for color choices. You can use it for a variety of Celebrations too.

I chose blue and green accent papers to keep it masculine. The patterned paper is some retired Stampin Up! that I had in my stash.
