Hello friends. I don’t often make masculine cards but I thought rather than waiting until I actually need them, I would be proactive and make some ahead of time. Today I am sharing a masculine birthday card using the Catherine Pooler Designs Feelin’ Fizzy stampset. I love this stampset because it’s got a very 1950s feel which makes it perfect for cards for my dad who from that time period. But the images are also just fun to stamp!!
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base, as well as another piece cut to 4 x 5-1/4″.
I added two pieces of pattern paper from the Catherine Pooler Designs Arnold’s Drive-In Patterned Paper cut to 1-1/2 x 5-1/4″ and 1-1/4 x 5-1/4″. I die cut the bottle from the panel then stamped bubbles from the Catherine Pooler Designs Feelin’ Fizzy stampset with It’s a Girl and It’s A Boy (or Oh Boy!-new formulation) inks and sparkles with Shea Butter Ink.
Next, I assembled the shaker element. I stamped the bottle with Tsukineko Stazon Midi Jet Black Ink onto a piece of acetate before adhering using double-sided tape. I stamped the bottle again with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink, It’s a Girl and Rockin Red inks onto a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I added 3M Foam Tape and clear flat sequins and Queen and Company Clear Diamonds Toppings to the shaker bottle.
The sentiment was stamped onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and die cut with the coordinating dies. The bottle caps were stmaped with Rockin Red ink.
I finished off the card by adding some Milwaukee Sequin Mix.
