I love making birthday cards for my family. Yesterday was my dad’s birthday, unfortunately he is out of the country this week with work, so instead we had a sort of farewell / birthday dinner a few weeks ago… which mum sort of sprang on me. I usually fairly organised when it comes to these special cards, but suddenly I need a card for my dad over a fortnight early!
This card uses This Little Piggy…. which I’m sure doesn’t immediately spring to mind when your thinking of men’s birthday cards, but I think it works! I did add a hint of Powder Pink watercolour to Mr. Piggy, but it was so light that the camera didn’t pick it up. This particular piggy stamp does come with a sentiment attached, I just masked it off with a piece of Sticky Note when inking the stamp with Basic Black Archival ink, but you could perform some stamping surgery and cut it off if you wanted to!
The Designer Series Paper is a strip 4 cm wide of the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper Stack in Dapper Denim. Have you noticed how much Dapper Denim I have used recently? I am currently on a bit of a use it all up mission…. I just have so much of it!
The sentiment is from Sweet Cupcake… I just love the cute birthday font, and it fits perfectly in the Classic Label punch too.
This card was finished with a spritz of Dapper Denim Stampin’ Write Marker. My dad loved it!
