Hello Birthday Boy!!

Hey friends!!  Thanks for checking out my blog post today!! 

Cards for men are usually more difficult to produce than women and children.  We want them to be custom but not "frilly" so sometimes it can be a challenge!!  Today I am excited to share with you a digital image and stamp set from Pink Bow Ties that can be used to customize cards for men!! 

Welcome to Digital Wednesdays (DW) for Pink Bow Ties Stamp Company!! 

I am in love with "Micheal's" suspenders, he really looks good in them!!  



Micheal's image is digital and available FOR FREE, YES FREE.  All you need to do to access this FREE file is join the Facebook group "Fifty Shades of Color" and download the image to your computer. I also used the Birthday Wishes stamp set to add the sentiment and glitter embossed stars.  I found this (really old) tag "One of a kind" that I added to the bottom base on top of a stripe of red card stock, its popped up because this card is actually an easel card!!  I also stamped, embossed and covered the happy birthday before adding the stars.  It was easier to know exactly where I could place my stars by having the image and sentiment already in place.

The stacked stars I cut using my Silhouette Cameo to balance out the right side of the card.  I first printed the digital image, twice (once on masking paper) so I could mask him off to create the stars background without getting any unwanted ink or embossing powder on the image.  A little layering and bam!!  Made an appropriate card for a male recipient!!
