I had to make a card for a male friend's birthday & was wondering if I could make the gift stamp from the SAB set 'Happy Moments' look a bit blokey. I searched through Splitcoast & found this card. I figured with a change of colour (thanks to Keesh that took no thought) it would make a good birthday card.
I bought a 'Cuttlebug' embossing folder a while back that looks like metal plate, so used that on the Brocade Blue & Mellow Moss CS instead of the dots, and used B.B. DSP from the hostess gift pack again. I added a Jumbo Eyelet as they always give a blokey feel. I coloured the image with my markers and stamped a sentiment from the set 'On Your Birthday'. I'm not sure if it is really blokey but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.
After all this though, I'm thinking I might make a different card for my mate as he loves music & plays in the church band, & I have a great (non-SU) guitar stamp. Oh well, back to the drawing board...
