Male Birthday

Materials
Stamps: Unknown UM (I think maybe Stylish Images but I could be wrong)
Inks: Colourbox French Blue, Brilliance Pearlescent Jade
Cardstock: Bazzill blues, Unknown Green
Other: Blue Grosgrain, Stampin Up word window punch, Cuttlebug Birthday Embossing Folder, DSFT

Good afternoon ladies,

Here is a quick male card again. I have a few male birthdays coming up and one of the things I promised myself this year, is to get some cards made ahead of time.

This one is really pretty IRL, coz the pearlescent really shimmers well on the embossed parts of the Cuttlebug!I used the offcut of the Cuttlebugged piece to punch out the three little flowers using the word window punch.

I currently have half a freezer full of mango ice blocks. For those of familiar with the Weiss Bars, they taste the same but are home made. My fridge is chokkers with mango puree and I am awaiting yet more cream so I can continue to make up the blocks. My family and friends will be right for the sweet life for the entire year to come. Poor poppets are really enjoying this year, as we just has two years without...if not more!

I am told I have to experiment and add macadamia nuts to one of these next batches as we have lots of those from one of the macca farms in these parts! Mega brownie points for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A great male card Shell making good use of the time stamp and the birthday cuttlebug folder.

Keep up the good work.

great job on this, I looked at this color combo and didn't feel it but you did good. could be because I don't have any "man" stamps.

Me and the CB go way back *LOL* Your card turned out great. Male cards are always difficult for me. Thanks for the inspiration.

Great card! I really need to ass some more masculine cards to my stash. In fact, FILs Birthday was yesterday (we are celebrating Sun) and I have not made his card yet!

Ok... that should have been ADD some more masculine cards. I can not edit my comment though! How embarrassing.
