Hero Arts Tiny Flags Background Masculine Birthday

The graphic element of Hero Arts Tiny Flags creates a great masculine birthday card.  Most men I know like the color blue and so the distress blending of blues and greens it a visually pleasing design.

A panel of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock was cut with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.  Before stamping the Hero Arts Tiny Flags Background stamp with VersaMark ink an anti-static pad was used to eliminate any oils from the surface to ensure the Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder would only stick where wanted.

Distress ink was applied using the Ranger Mini Embossing Tool.  Colors used are: Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers.  Blue Offray Grosgrain Ribbon was was tied around the panel and tied in a knot, then the panel was glued to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

For the focal image the Just Right Spellbinders Nested Medallion Labels was used to cut some Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock. Inkadinkadoo’s Happy Birthday was stamped on the label with VersaMark Ink and sprinkled with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Marvy Embossing Tool.  “Happy Birthday” was added from Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and Party stamp.

The label was adhered to the ink blended panel using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. Tiny blue confetti stars were added to the label with Multi Matte Medium and the card was done.
