Masculine Birthday




I purchased this SU stamp set some time ago mainly for the train. I Finally got around to making a card with it.  I find it difficult to make masculine cards due to lack of really nice masculine images.

I stamped the train and sentiment with Black Memento Ink, used clear detail embossing powder and heat embossed.

I used a Close to my Heart Paper Pack called Wanderful. The Happy Birthday is from an upcoming April Stamp of the Month and the yellow stars are actually white stars that I colored to match the Honey Cardstock, with color Y222 ShinHan Alcohol marker.

The round embellishment on the front of the circle was something I had lying around and thought it would look nice there. Why not.....one less thing lying around my craft room! *Ü*

The design of this card was inspired by a sketch from Technostampers Challenge Blog.
