A Wetlands Birthday Masculine Card

Do I really have to even tell you where I found this card?  LOL Of course it was Pinterest.  You can see the original card here.   I did change it a very little bit. I did not have the same decorative paper that was used on the original.  I, once again, used what I had!!  I keep using what I have and I'm still not using it all up!  Does that mean I have too much stuff??  My husband would answer that with a "yes!"  LOL

This was a very fun card to make and it was very easy too.

I just cut my focal piece  4" x 5-1/4".  I cut the decorative paper 2" x 4".  I wasn't sure how wide to make it so I went with the 2". I could have gone narrower because I did cover a lot of it up with the "Birthday Greetings" panel.  

I used Memento ink on this card. I hadn't worked with it much at all.  I have had the pad for years but rarely used it.  Don't ask me why!!!  I tend to grab the StazOn ink pad instead.  The Memento pad stamped just as crisp as the StazOn and a  bonus,  it was a whole lot easier to clean!!!

To place the images, I attached the decorative paper to the white card stock.  Then I stamped and assembled the word panel but I didn't attach it to the card.  I set it in place to see where I needed to stamp the images.  Then I set it aside and stamped the goose first and then the weeds.  I stamped the left weed image first, reinked and then stamped the second one on the right.  I didn't pay attention but I had gotten ink on the edge of the stamp and of course, I pressed too hard on the stamp and it left and ink mark on the card. GRRRR.  Oh well, it is what it is!!

I did like making this card (except for the inked rubber edge).  I think it's a great masculine card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
