Another birthday card...

Hello!  Hope everyone is having a nice weekend....it's definitely feeling like fall here in Ohio....it was chilly today!  

So yesterday was my husband's birthday and I had made him a card, however, I felt it was girly, so I made him another one, this time with more masculine colors. 

I embossed the green sheet with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, then got my other supplies together to stamp and color in the cake. 

The stamp set is from Stampendous, and the markers are copic.  
The colors I used were:

B00, B02, B05, Y02, Y06, E40, E41

I'm still new to coloring with copics, but I think the cake turned out pretty good.  

Then I embossed the sentiment with some black and glitter embossing powder. 

I cut out the cake and adhered it with some foam tape to give it dimension and used some yellow stickles on the candle.  I really like how this one turned out:

That's it for tonight, please share my blog with your friends....I'd love to get some more traffic and get my name out there in the blog world!

Have a great rest of the weekend! :)


  1. Happy Birthday to your hubby! Love the texture you added in your card. So much you can do to your embossing folder - try inking on one (inside) side and embossing white cardstock for a letterpress technique :)

  2. Great tip! Thanks, Margie, I'll have to try it. Thanks for visiting my blog too! :)
