Masculine Birthday cards courtesy of Gina K


I think one of my least made cards are masculine ones, but here are a few I've had to make recently to share with you. The first one uses Gina K Designs Tree Silhouettes in which I used her thumping technique (here is a link where you can watch a video where Gina shows you how it's done on StampTV and a link for you to play along & perhaps win a free GK set!) I thought this set showcases this technique so beautifully!

The sentiment used is from the current one free with 3 set, Tag Lines and I used my word window punch for it. I just love the Basic Grey Granola paper pad with great masculine colors & patterns. I followed the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch by Kazan from this week for my card (I love their sketches and have missed participating in them!) This card was perfect for great uncle Otto who turns 102 this week. On the inside I handwrote a collaborative poem (with the help of my DH, FIL & MIL). It reads:

"Your turning 102 is special to me.
May the Lord continue to bless you,
Like a beautiful Oak tree
that graces us with its Beauty."

My other card uses Gina K's How Sweet It is set (which a portion of the sale goes to the American Diabetes Association) and Just so Sporty set for the sentiment. This card was made for my FIL who LOVES ice cream! I thought personalizing the ice cream dish with DAD would be fun! He got a kick out of it! I also used the Basic Grey Granola paper & buttons for this card & tied white cotton thread through them. The image is colored with Koh-i-Noor pencils.
