Hey everyone! Happy Monday! Did you all have a good weekend?
Today I’m sharing a masculine birthday card I made for a friend:
What do you think? I know a lot of crafters dread masculine cards but I absolutely love them!
I started by die-cutting the T-Shirt from some Simple Stories So Awesome patterned paper using the MFT Masculine Graphic Tee die. I then inked the edges with VintageTouch Tea Dye Duo ink to help give it a bit of definition.
Next I stamped the splatter from Grunge Me using Kraft and Fine Linen inks. I then followed with the grunge circles, inking up with a mix of Pure Poppy, Canyon Clay, Simply Chartreuse and SU! Soft Suede ink to give the multi-coloured effect.
I added some stars from Military Stars using Kraft ink, then added the guitar from the A:Muse Rock Star set using SU! Soft Suede ink, then accented with a couple of the music notes from Boy Basics: Rock On using Kraft ink.
Now, onto the base. I used a Rustic Cream card base and stamped the large chevrons from WaltzingMouse Stamps’ Woodgrain set (can you tell how much I love this set?! I’m having trouble not using it on everything!) using a mix of Simply Chartreuse, Canyon Clay and Kraft inks. I added the little arrow strip from the Studio Calico Block Party stamp set (December 2012 scrapbook kit) using a mix of Kraft and SU! Soft Suede inks.
Finally I stamped the sentiment from MFT’s Masculine Graphic Tee set using SU! Soft Suede ink and adhered the T-Shirt to the base using Pinflair Glue Gel. My friend isn’t all that keen on acknowledging his birthday so I didn’t use a birthday sentiment on the front!
A quick peek of the inside shows the sentiment from Boy Basics: Rock On stamped with SU! Soft Suede ink as well. No escaping saying Happy Birthday here! *wink*
Well, the weekend came and went far too quickly didn’t it?! I didn’t create anywhere near as much as I wanted to. Hopefully this coming weekend will be different! Thanks so much for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

Totally fun card!
Wood grain chevron is so cool as a background for a masculine card
Fun! I love that woodgrain chevron stamp!
A PERFECT masculine card in my book!
Awesome card Taheerah! I like making masculine cards too (I better, I have two boys ages 9 and 10 and all their little friends to make cards for). I may need to get that T-shirt die as it works so well with the Grunge Me set (along with the PTI game on and rock on?) sets that I already have. Thanks for the inspiration!
