Do you find it more challenging to make a masculine birthday card? I have to think about things a bit more usually, but for this card there was a specific piece of paper I wanted to use, as I knew it would make my husband laugh when he read it. This is a pretty simple and clean looking card as he doesn’t like too much fuss on cards. He normally likes bright too but I think he will like this one even though it isn’t bright. I coloured Winter Marci with my copics because I have long brown curly hair (so even though I am nowhere near as cute as Winter Marci!) and she represents me in this card. He likes the La La Land stamps and does agree that they are very cute. I desaturated the blue green colours to tone them down at little to better match my papers using my W0 and W1. Colleen Schaan has done a great video tutorial on this technique which is posted on the Copic Oz blog – check it out here. I decorated the inside of the card as the card was pretty simple but you can’t see that in the photo. I just put strips of patterned paper across the lower section inside the card and added a corrugated heart by Jillibean Soup.
Hope you had an excellent weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
