From Land to Sea - Masculine Birthday Card

Hey there friends!  How are things in your neck of the woods!  Hopefully all is well!  It's a little less smokey here today...but still bad.  I sure hope it rains soon...enough to put these unreachable...uncontained fires out! Otherwise it's gonna be smokey for awhile!  I can't complain though...my family is SAFE and I still have my home!!

Last night I had a workshop and we made four cards.  I shared one yesterday...my easel card and I want to share another one today!  I have some gals that need masculine cards (I'm VERY bad at masculine cards) so I decided to add one to this class.  It's VERY SIMPLE...here goes....

I used the From Land to Sea stamp set.  I just bought this set specifically so I could make some masculine cards.  First I stamped the grass in Old Olive using the Work of Art stamp set. I then stamped the lighthouse image with Memento Black ink and colored it in with my Cherry Cobbler marker. I sponged around the lighthouse lightly with Bermuda Bay ink.  

I used the 1 1/4" Cherry Cobbler Striped Grosgrain ribbon for the band and added a few 1/8" mini brads.  I added a birthday sentiment to the inside, but kept it simple...nothing else. 

I'm happy with how it turned out...I really need to step out of my box and try new things...and masculine cards is one of them!

Thanks bunches for stopping by again today!  I'm gonna take my kiddos back to school clothes shopping tomorrow, so I'm gonna try to get a post done EARLY in the morning...be sure to check back in!  Before I leave you...here are this weeks specials!
