A Wetlands and Happy Happenings Masculine Birthday Card

I found this fun masculine card made by Sharon Graham at Split Coast Stampers.  I haven't surfed around on their site in a while.  I wasn't looking for anything in particular but when I saw this fun card, I just had to make it.  You can see the original card here. The words I used came from the "Happy Happenings" set.  I wanted to use words from a current set and I found ones that fit that space!  

I like simple cards for guys.  

For the stamped birds, I took a piece of card stock cut 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" and I put post it notes all around it on top of the Whisper White card stock.  I removed the card stock in the center and then sponged on some Sahara Sand and Soft Sky.  Then I added the Crushed Curry and that is when I saw the greens come out of the mixture of colors.  I removed the post it notes, which was a mistake.  I then put the post it notes back on and stamped the birds.  I used Memento black ink but I should have used Early Espresso.  I stamped the weeds and the words using Early Espresso ink.

I cut the white piece 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  I cut the Early Espresso 4-1/8" x 5-3/8". I layered those two on top of a folded half sheet of Sahara Sand.  I was kind of glad the card stock used here was Sahara Sand. I think I'm still on the first pack I bought when that color was introduced.  I don't use it much at all!

This was really a quick card to make.  And such a great masculine card!!!  I think it would make a wonderful Father's Day card or even a masculine Sympathy card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
