Masculine Birthday Card - A Cut Above

 This is a fun masculine birthday card for that man who always has the greenest grass and the nicest yard!  We all know that man!!

I am joining the Stamping  INKspirations Blog Hop this month and the theme is Birthday cards!!

I made this card from the A Cut Above stamp set from the Mini Jan- June 2021 Catalog.
He is stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White Cardstock.  I used the Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue ink to do the sky, the rest of the scene is colored with various Stampin' Blends and cut out with a Stitched Rectangle Die. 

The base of the card is Mossy Meadow, there are two of the Stitched Triangles of Pear Pizzaz and the green plaid is from the Hydrangea Hill DSP.  

I fussy cut some clouds and the sun, colored them with Stampin' Blends and popped them up with Dimensionals.  
On the inside of the card I cut a strip of grass using the retiring Special Day Dies and adhered that across the bottom of my Basic White insert and stamped the sentiment from A Cut Above stamp in Olive Green ink.  
Doesn't he look like he is in his happy place!?!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
