Birthday Stripes

Hello there, I don't know about you, but I tend to struggle a bit with masculine cards. I think it is ok of they are into a certain hobby but if you just want a generic one, I do find it a little more difficult. I find with masculine cards, simple is best and these are very simple indeed!

I started off by stamping the happy birthday sentiment from the Concord & 9th Birthday Scoops Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. This stamp is in two parts so that you can combine different colours for the letters but I went with all black for today. They were then die cut out using the Concord & 9th Birthday Scoops Die Set

I took five colours of Concord & 9th Cardstock in Midnight, Peacock, Aqua Sky, Sprout and Parsley and die cut the sheets using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Die. I took panels of white cardstock and adhered the strips on top, at a diagonal. 

The panels were adhered to US A2 sized white card bases with thin foam tape and the sentiments adhered on top with more thin foam tape. I thought about adding some embellishments but actually, I liked them as is, even if they are very plain!

These cards would be a good one to mass produce as I still have lots of strips left to make more! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great day! 


  1. These are fabulous Michelle! The stripes are perfect for masculine cards and that sentiment really packs a punch. Love the whole combination and the cards are brilliant for pesky men! xx
