Hello there, I am sure I have told you in the past that I struggle to come up with ideas for cards for men. Younger boys? no problem but older males? not so much. I find it is ok if they like sports, beer, fishing etc. but if they do not, I find it difficult to come up with generic ideas. I came across a card by Laura Bassen that I thought could be adapted to a birthday card and would be great for men.
For the card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock. I took the Ink Splats stamp set from WPlus9 and stamped two of the splats on to it using MFT dye inks. I then stamped the 'happy' from the CB Happy Birthday stamp set and the 'to you' from the CB Congrats To You stamp set with black ink.
I die cut the SSS Painted Happy Birthday die twice from white cardstock and layered up the birthday word. I took the white stamped panel and adhered this to an A2 Fog card base with foam sheet. The die cut word was then added on top (adding a little foam tape behind the 'y'). To finish off, I added some Doodlebug Sprinkles.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click on the picture or wording to be taken to where I purchased it. Affiliate links are used on some products.

I am very glad to have another male card in my card box! Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great weekend!
