Masculine Birthday card

I was invited at the last minute to have some cake at a really good friend of ours to celebrate his birthday, so I didn’t have much time to make a card. So I thought this would be a great opportunity to challenge myself to make it in 10 minutes, inspired by a challenge I can’t remember where now! LoL! Anyway I set my timer and started my card and as you will see, it is a really easy card to make.

As I didn’t have any pre-cut card bases and I didn’t want to waste time cutting them, I just pulled out a cream Hero Arts already folded card and coloured it with Stampin’ Up inks and my roller.  I just rolled over the lightest coloured ink pad first and then rolled over my card. Easy Peasy! Tip – I wiped a little ink off my roller on wet wipes before rolling over the next ink pad. I flicked a little black ink on the background and stamped my sentiment from Technique Junkies with Versafine ink.

For the little birdie from KatzelKraft, I stamped it on a piece of Clairefontaine multi technique 250gm paper with Versafine black ink and cut it with my Brother scan and cut. I then coloured it with my Zig watercolour brushes and stuck it on the card. And that was it! How long did it take? I don’t know cause somehow my timer didn’t start! I know it wasn’t long though.

Well I hope you like my quick masculine card and I would love to know what you think of it!
