Masculine Birthday Card

I cased this card that Britta Swiderski made...she has a video tutorial with the instructions and supplies...Here is my take on her card:

And a close-up:

I have a really hard time making masculine cards!!...I always want to add ribbon and bling...but then the card looks too girly!! when I came across Britta's video...I had to try it!!

This card was a lot of fun to make!!...The card base is 5 x 5 Kraft cardstock...I used the only cupcake stamps I had...from Inque See D's Party Cupcakes...I stamped the smallest cupcake on the card base with Versa Mark ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder...I sponged Distress Ink over the top and wallah...background paper!!...I then stamped the next larger cupcake onto Basic Grey's Obscure paper and cut them out....I stamped each one twice and cut the bottom off of half of them...then popped the bottoms up on the cupcakes with pop dots...I have a huge pile of tissue I thought...hmmmm....paper liners for the cupcakes!!...I sprayed white tissue paper with some glimmer mist...and let it dry...I them folded pleats and cut little rectangles out for the liners....I think they are sooo cute!!...the candles have some Stickles on the flames and glossy accents on the candles!!!

I used some ribbon and nail heads from my stash!!

Thank you so much, Britta, for the wonderful videos that you do!!...I get a lot of inspiration from your blog and videos!!

That's it for now!!...we are going to Cedar Point for the weekend!!...I can't wait...we go every year for the Hallo-weekends....It just sooo much fun!!

Have a Great Day!!
