I always make my masculine cards very dark I’ve noticed, not sure why. I guess my next challenge will be to make a bright masculine card, hehe. I made this for my stepfather but I might make a new one with another theme. Now I have one as a backup if I don’t get the time to make him a second card.
I was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday sketch! I went for some matching colors from a few of my bo bunny papers I’ve sliced into 6×6’s. I added some gloss to the bike but it doesn’t show properly on the image below, and I used some stickles on the arrow to make the card a bit more fun. I had a hard time choosing the color of the card base.. white, grey or brown? I thought the brown brought the colors to life more than the white base, the grey one just made the card very meh.
The stamp is colored with pencils! That was a loooong long time ago and the only reason is me being lazy. I stamped the bike on a paper that bleed and I was too lazy to redo it on a proper piece of paper :-)
I did another rookie mistake and assembled the card before I had the sentiment stamped so I stamped on the card when almost finished! First I was going to put his age in the circle but I realized that I’ve done that for the last 10 birthday cards so I had to rethink.

I like the clean lines of your card….perfect for masculine! The sparkly arrow is a fun accent as well! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
What a great card! I love the dsp and the bicycle image is so fun. Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!
I really like the bicycle image paired with the argyle patterned paper. It is the perfect combination for a masculine birthday card! Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!
