Masculine Birthday Card – Paper Pumpkin Giveaway

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday, along with my daughter’s. I have to confess, I have many months of unused Paper Pumpkin kits. However, I love having them to use for the right occasion. I needed to make a masculine birthday card for my husband, when going through the past kits, I came across Many Manly Occasions Kit from, gulp, May 2016.

Masculine Birthday Card

One of the things I love best about Paper Pumpkin is how quickly you can put the kit items together. Everything you need comes in the kit. All you have to do is follow the directions and assemble. You can get your quick fix of creativity, and have the cards you need within 30 minutes.

I did detour just a little bit on one of the cards.

With this card I colored the “Happy” in Night of Navy. Using a Stamping Sponge, I inked it up with the Night of Navy ink pad that came with the kit and then sponged the color onto the word “Happy”. I really like how it came out. For a little bit more dimension, I also added two of the heart enamel shapes from the Regals Enamel Shapes from Stampin’ Up.

I realize all of these cards are geared towards birthday, but that is where my head has been right now! There are a variety of masculine greetings in this kit. I took a picture of them below. You’ll see I put one back incorrectly. Can you tell which one?
