Happy Birthday Husband

Hi everyone,

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.
