For the Guys!

I am in need of a few masculine type birthday cards soon so today I worked with a stencil from Stampinback called Flagstones which I thought resembled the hide of a giraffe. Along with that background I also used the giraffe images and sentiment from the Stampinback Sheet 138B.


Both the stencil and the stamps I used are available at I Brake For Stamps. I used Gina K. Designs Ivory and Black card stock and also used Gina K. Designs Warm Cocoa and Black inks on this card. After layering the main panel onto black I then added the ribbon before I adhered it to the Ivory card base.

Well, not a lot of time to stamp this week but at least I got couple done towards my supply of birthday cards.

Hope you are having a good week and here we are having spring like weather. Hurray!

God bless,
Verna

Verna, you have a great eye to see that the flagstone would work as a giraffe print! It totally does! This is an incredible masculine birthday card!! Hugs, Darnell

great stencil with that stamp image, Verna! And pretty colors! I like that the background is so colorful, and that the image itself is a silhouette - beautiful design, and perfectly "masculine"! huggers, de
