So here is card #2 in my Birthday Series. For this card I chose another Melonheadz stamp and paired it with the Basic Grey Oliver collection. This is how the card turned out.
I decided to go with a more mascuine birthday card since, it seems, I never have enough of them. I also chose to use an MFT (My Favorite Things) sketch for the layout of the card.
I have found that masculine cards tend to be very simple in design and the for this card, the layout and paper line worked perfectly.
I colored him up using my Copic markers and struggled not to put and glitter on the package. A difficult feat, trust me. But in the end he looks really cut without any glitter. I backed him on kraft card stock and that was the end. Quick and simple. Looking back I might have chosen to ink the edges of the paper, especially the light colored paper. I will definitely keep that in might for the next card.
So there you have it. Card #2.
