Masculine Birthday Card

Our baby boy's birthday is tomorrow.  He's a grown man now but to us...he'll always be our baby boy.  :-)

That boy loves fishing more than anything else.  He keeps a pole and gear in his car in case he happens to see a spot to put his line in for even a few minutes.

I just love this stamp from Flourishes Kids Play.  I've had it forever and adore the simple yet beautiful silhouettes and sentiments.


To create the background, I first stamped the image onto a scrap cardstock circle, then I lined it up side by side with the circle I intended to use.  I drew a light pencil line at the horizon mark so I would know where the sky ends and water begins. 

I used my Tim Holtz blenders and Hero Arts Shadow inks to blend two colors each for the sky and water.  (sorry, I forgot to write them down!)  All paper Papertrey Ink.

After the blending was finished, I stamped the image in Versamark ink, sprinkled with black embossing powder then heat embossed the image, stamped the sentiment, mounted on the black circle and done.  

I hope he likes it.  

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by.


Pin It!

Hello Charlene,

This is such a perfect card for your boy who likes fishing. I am sure he would love it.

How are you? I still have that sweet book you sent me a few years ago. And I also have the beautiful card you sent along.

I moved to Singapore, back to Singapore after a gap of 14 years. We never lost touch with Singapore all these years yet it took us almost two years to settle in. We moved in June 2014.

Would love to hear from you,

Monica
