A Couple of Male Birthday Cards


I needed a couple of male birthday cards for later this week and I thought Seth's dies would be perfect for that male touch. Layered up lots of shades of fresco paints in blues and browns. Lightly stamped some of the images in Seth's solar system set in blue and brown stazon. I coloured the brown set of dies with french roast and the blue set are actually double embossed using blue wow powders, I don't have any in brown!! But, can you spot the deliberate mistake probably not on the photo, but on the right card, I meant to put the die cut with the 'x' on the bottom and the drips over the top, but I stuck the drips one on first by mistake!! Not to worry, it still looks okay!!

And I'm also sneaking these into the PaperArsty challenge this week.

Two fab male cards Sam. Might have to pinch the ideas at some point when I'm having my usual struggle for cards suitable for the men in my life. I wouldn't have known you didn't intend 2nd card to look like that. Make another quick then you have one ready for the next male's birthday!
