Well who else is having a crazy month of birthdays?? I must admit I didn't get organised with my cardmaking before I went on holiday meaning that I'm playing catch up. Not useful as there have already been 4 birthdays this week and it's only Wednesday!
I thought I'd share one that I made for a male friend of the family because I always find male cards the most difficult to do but Stampin' Up! do come to the rescue with great stamp sets for the men in your life.
I created a background using Gorgeous Grunge and stamped off to produce a lighter image except for the bigger 'splats' as I wanted them to stand out a bit more. The new Black Archival ink was perfect for the tools and the sentiment, giving a lovely sharp impression against the smoky slate.
Lining up the tools stamp was super easy thanks to them being photopolymer, I could see exactly where I was stamping.
These would be great to make a few of in advance and add the sentiment inside to suit the occasion if you're a bit more organised than me ;)
Below is a list of all you need to make your own and be sure to ask if you have any questions.
