Home to Roost, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Masculine Birthday Card, 2019 Sale-a-Bration

I found a fun card on Pinterest using the "Home to Roost" Sale-a-Bration set.  I thought it was such a cute set.  You can see the original card here.  

Should I ever make another one, I will make sure I don't turn the rooster upside down. That way I would get more rooster heads in the background.  I had taken a half a sheet of Whisper White card stock and I planned on making a couple of cards but half way through I dropped the stamp on the card stock and rendered it unusable.  SO I just ended up with the top half being good and going from there. 

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the roosters from the "Home to Roost" set using black Memento ink.  I colored in the top part of the chicken the comb and the thing under it's neck using the Real Red marker.  I stamped a rooster on a piece of scrap white and die cut it using the stitched circle die. I also die cut a scalloped circle to fit the rooster circle. I had ended up with a rooster background piece measuring 3-1/2" x 4".  I taped it to the Whisper White piece. 

I took a piece of Real Red card stock and textured it using the "Hardwood" embossing folder.  I cut the piece 4" x 2-1/4" and taped it to the bottom of the Whisper White piece.  I taped it all down on top of the card base. 

I set the Rooster circles in place using Dimensionals. 

I stamped the words from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using black Memento ink.  I punched it using the "Classic Label" punch. I added small Dimensionals to the left and center and I added some snail to the right side. 

I took two strands of linen and tied a bow. I set the bow in place using a small glue dot.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card was done.

I think this makes a great masculine birthday card!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
