Hello! It has been a while since I created a masculine card, so for today I thought I would share a quick and simple birthday card for a guy in your life.

Masculine card is something that a lot of cardmakers struggle with, and in my opinion keeping them simple and sweet is a great approach to solve this issue. I love highlighting sentiments on any masculine cards because they are direct and straightforward.

I used Guy Sentiments stamp set from Inspired By Stamping for today’s card. There are great sentiments for birthdays to anniversary to Father’s day, so it is an awesome set to get a lot of a set. I simply stamped the sentiment using the Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat set the image using the Clear Gloss Embossing Powder from WOW!.

For the background I pieced couple of scrap patterned papers and added a thin strip of blue cardstock to help the sentiment area stand out. I added few wood-textured enamel dots around the focal point to dress up the card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. Please check back tomorrow as I will be starting a 5-day inspiration video series!
