A Guy Greetings and Wetlands Masculine Birthday Card

Sometimes I have to laugh at myself when I'm putting my cards together.  I wanted to use some of the decorative paper from the 12" x 12" "It's My Party" paper stack but I wanted it to be as masculine as possible.  So I found this one.  The beige colored piece is the backside of the balloons.  

I had a car already stamped and thought I would use it.  As I was starting to put the card together, I realized the car was stamped on Very Vanilla.  So I got out a piece of scrap Whisper White and stamped a car in black.  I cut it out and then cut a layer of Mint Macaron.  Next I stamped the words "Happy Father's Day" and layered them.  I added the Dimensionals and was just about to set it in place and realized that balloons and Father's Day don't seem to go together so well.  It's a birthday card with all of those balloons on it.  So I stuck the words to the package of Dimensionals so I can hopefully remove it later and use it on another future card. And after I typed that I checked the packaging and the word layer was kind of stuck so I had to rethink it.  I noticed that my glue dots were sitting there with a strip of the paper hanging on it so I tore off pieces to protect the Dimensionals.  Now I can move on!!!  I stamped the "Birthday Greetings" from the "Wetlands" set and punched out a Mint Macaron scalloped oval. I taped the two together and added Dimensionals to the back.  I set it in place on the card.  It looks a little bare because the Father's Day words were wider and longer and would have looked nicer there.  But it is what it is!  I wish Stampin' Up! would come out with a masculine paper stack every year.  I like having masculine paper to play with.

This was a very quick and easy card to make.  I want to try this layout again and use the Father's Day piece I have ready to go!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
