Birthday cards for guys are always harder to come up with ideas. For this card I used a clean and simple, graphic design with the Simon Says Stamp Mod Window Die and an ink blended background.
I ran the Simon Says Stamp Mod Window Die through the Sizzix Big Shot with Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock. I cut the panel down to have a small border around the die cut. With the leftover cardstock I used the Distress Ink colors listed below to create a pretty background for the die cut. A small rectangle was cut to fit behind the window die and Tombo Mono Multi Glue was used to adhere the two together. With the leftover ink blended paper I die cut the word “birthday” the Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and Party Stamp and Die and then again three additional times with scrap white cardstock. All were glued together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Adhesive Spray.
For assembling the card a side folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. Another rectangle was cut using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames Rectangle. Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back. A narrow rectangle was cut with a paper trimmer to be the perfect size to when combined with Mod Window Die to create a rectangle that is 1/8″ smaller than the bundle of stitched frames rectangle. The word die was placed on the narrow rectangle to determine placement of the secondary sentiment, which was stamped with Distress Faded Jeans Ink.
The rectangle cut with the bundle of stitched frames was adhered to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue. The Mod Window die was glued to the bottom of the rectangle just inside the stitch marks on the rectangle with the same glue and then the narrow rectangle was glued on top. The “birthday” die cut was adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the card was done.
