Another Monster-ously masculine card

And why settle for one MONSTER-ously cute and masculine card when you can have two?! It just so happens that today is my boss’ birthday. He’s not only an outstanding manager, but he is also an amazing colleague who is greatly appreciated by all. And so it was that I couldn’t let his day go by without making him a birthday card.

I used the die-cut inlay technique to create the shadow below this little blue guy, which is similar to putting together a puzzle. I die cut the oval shape in the white card panel and discarded the positive piece. Then I die cut the same shape again from black card stock, this time discarding the negative piece. I then pieced my card panel and my black oval together like two pieces in a puzzle. It’s such a fun technique and the results are super in real life! I then added a few droplets with my liquid pearls and repeat stamped that sentiment on the right.

So there you have it, more inspiration for those masculine cards which can sometimes be so “puzzling” to create! Happy birthday, Tom. May the year ahead be full of reasons for you to celebrate!
