I like the Whimsy Stamps Cupcake Treat Trio stamp. It makes a quick and easy card that, depending on the colors you use, can easily make a masculine birthday card.
To make this card masculine I used a green and cream striped paper from Keeping Memories Alive Meadow Green Ribbon Cardstock. I cut a rectangle using the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Rectangle and added a slightly smaller rectangle of Darice Adhesive Fun Foam, which was added to the back of the panel. The rectangle was adhered to a side folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
I stamped the cupcake trio to a quarter sheet of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The image was colored with Copic Markers, colors are listed below. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Many Birthday Messages and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. For added interest to the focal image I wanted to die cut it with Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle, but it didn’t leave enough room at the bottom for the sentiment, so it was cut with Spellbinders Label 28. The label was cut again with Darice Adhesive Fun Foam and then trimmed to just smaller than the original. Once the foam was adhered to the focal image it was glued to the front of the card using Tombo Mono Multi Glue. To add a little more gold to the card the flourishes were traced with Stickles Tidings and the card was done.
