Make It Mail-able Monday week 2

Decided to make a masculine birthday card for today!  It actually matches the newest tutorial that will be coming out tomorrow!  So if you were to purchase that tutorial you would have an extra card for a total of 7 cards using the same limited supplies!  More about that later...Let's focus on today's card shall we?

 I used the new stamp set High Tide from the Occasions Mini and the Happy Birthday sentiment from Designer Tee from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I also used the paper pack Sending Love--all supplies can be purchased at the end of the post if you are at all interested! 

  • The base of the card is Basic Black Cardstock the is 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" that is folded in half to create card base.
  • The next layer from the bottom up is a 4 3/4" by 3 1/2"  piece of Basic Gray Cardstock. 
  • On the bottom 3" of this layer, I added two strips of Real Red Cardstock alternated with two strips of striped designer paper from the Sending Love paper pack.  Each of these strips is cut to 7/8" by 3". 
  • Next, I added a strip of Basic Black Cardstock that is 3 1/2" by 3/4" over the top edge of the previous strips.  See picture above for clarification.  This entire element is attached to the front of the card base. 
  • Now you will want to stamp the lighthouse onto a 1 3/4" square of Whisper White Cardstock. The base image is stamped with Smoky Slate ink and the top part of the image is stamped with Real Red.  Add the light streaming from the lighthouse with Daffodil Delight ink. 
  • Layer this element onto a Basic Black square that is 1 7/8".  Add to the upper right-hand side of the Basic Gray layer as shown above.  
  • Finish off this card by stamping the Happy Birthday sentiment in Black ink onto a small scrap of Real Red Cardstock and cut out.  Add to front of the card as shown above.  Simple and cute!  Great masculine card.  Here is the inside of the card....

The inside is very simple and I did not add an inside sentiment as I tend to like to write mine and this was actually created for someone particular.  The Whisper White Cardstock is 3 3/4" by 5" and the birds are stamped in Black ink.  The strip of designer paper is 3/4" by 3 3/4" 

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Here is a little sneak peek of the new tutorial that will be available sometime tomorrow.

This tutorial will have six more cards using the same supplies I used for today's card.  And as always it will be available for only $3--affordable ideas for your stamping time.  

Here is the supply list for today's card.....

Thanks for visiting today! Mary Jo
