Spec-tacular Masculine Birthday Card

Stampin up stampinup spectacular single stamp pretty order online masculine card birthday idea
I have a number of birthday cards to make this month for the men in my life and have been anxious to use the Stampin' Up! Spec-tacular Single Stamp.  I combined the little glasses of the stamp with a clean, graphic style that is very "man-friendly."   This card and stamp can work for a "thank you" or Father's Day card, too.

This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO283) was the foundation of my card.  Note that I flipped it 90 degrees.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • Simply fun!  I stamped the Spec-tacular stamp in Early Espresso and then (partially) Real Red.  One pair of glasses from Real Red was snipped out and popped up on slivers of Stampin' Dimensionals.

  • Using a Stampin' Up! Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker, I isolated just the words "one in a million" (eliminating "that makes you") on the sentiment.  See the One in a Million stamp set images below.

  • The final coordinating touch is a bit of Real Red Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper on the envelope flap.
