Here are a couple birthday cards I made recently for some guys. I find it harder to make cards for the guys than I go for females, and I don't have too many stamps that are more masculine in nature.
I have been looking at some of Laura Bassen's work, using overlapping colors and I came up with this idea with the PaperTrey Ink set; LIVE LOVE LIFE. She does some great clean and simple cards and I've been enjoying her posts and videos.
On the first card I used the LIVE LOVE LIFE stamps and the greeting is PaperTrey Inks Bigger Blooms set. On the second card the happy die cut is from My Favorite Things and I cut it three times and glued them together to make a nice thick element. Birthday is stamped from Stampin' Up's Big Day set. Then just some random epoxy dots to embellish the cards and you're done!
