Masculine Birthday Card | Stephanie

Hey everyone! Stephanie here and I am SO EXCITED to be here for my first post
on the Neat & Tangled blog!

I put together a masculine birthday card for you today because honestly, I find them the absolute hardest cards for me to make haha. I am terribly feminine in my creations which typically suits me well but when it comes time for me to give a card to a "manly man" (aka my gigantically bearded husband) I almost never have anything on hand. So here is what I came up with!

I started by creating the wreath and hooray sentiment using the Hooray Die. I die cut it twice - once from green cardstock and once from blue cardstock - and then I trimmed the wreath away from the  blue one. I layered them on top of each other with some adhesive and lined the back of the wreath with a bit of vellum.

I used the Succulent Journaling Die to create a journaling card which I repeatedly stamped with the wood stamp from the On the Strip 2 set. I'm going for earthy here can you tell lol? ;) And for my card base I stamped a light colored ink with the "celebrate" sentiment from the Just For You set

I finished my card off with some stitching at the top of the journaling card and I just couldn't help myself and added some sequins as well haha. I made sure to use simple iridescent ones (that I grabbed from the new Sugar Plum set) to not be too girly.

What do you think? Do you have trouble creating masculine cards?
Thank you so much all! Much love!

Xo, Stephanie
