Rainbow Balloon Birthday

I saw this great post on Pinterest ( 473229873344337455 ) and thought I would give it a try for a masculine birthday card. All you need is some balloon dies, a pretty birthday die cut, and a way to add rainbow colors to your cardstock. Love the way it turned out. So bright and colorful.

Masculine Happy Birthday Hot Rod

My husband’s birthday is in October, but we are going to be in Europe for three weeks and so I wanted to get his card created early. He loved the cards I had made previously with the Cottage Cuts Racecars and Flags and so I decided to make one more with Midnight Blue Mirror Cardstock, since blue is his favorite color.

Products Used:

  • Cottage Cutes Racecars and Flags
  • Honey Bee You’re a Classic
  • Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink

Masculine Racecar – They Don’t Make ‘Em Like They Used To

This is the second card I made with the Cottage Cuts Racecars and Flags die. As you can see there are two different cars in the die cut. I pulled out Honey Bee’s You’re a Classic for the sentiment.

Products Used:

  • Cottage Cuts Racecars and Flags
  • Honey Bee You’re a Classic

Masculine Racecar Happy Birthday

I think this Cottage Cuts Racecar and Flags is an awesome die. The only thing I don’t like is that it is one single die for all the pieces to assemble the cards. The good thing about that is you get a lot of pieces to make multiple cards from one die cut. I had purchased a long time ago a pack of Crafter’s Companion Luxury Mirror Cardstock in a multi-color pack. I pulled out the Turquoise to make this card.
