Masculine Birthday CardILCS24 sketchMy Birthday Rocks masculine birthday day card is designed for the sketch this week at i Love Card Sketches.

On Monday I posted a card I designed for my husband’s birthday, but I think he will like this one better.  He is a real rock hound and will appreciate the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper on this card.

The Polka Dot embossing folder is used on both the Sahara Sand and the Basic Gray accent pieces.  The large dots are colored with a sponge dauber using both Sahara Sand and Basic Gray ink.

I didn’t have any gray ribbon so I mixed a little alcohol and a few drops of Basic Gray ink refill in a small plastic.  Just drop the small pieces of ribbon into the liquid for a minute.  I pulled them out with my craft tweezers and dried them with a heat tool.  Voila!  Gray ribbon!

The Whisper White label is sponged lightly all over with Sahara Sand ink and then a little darker around the edges.  As I’m looking at the card now, I’m thinking a little sponging around the polka dot piece of Sahara Sand might look nice.  Also maybe sponge around the designer series paper with Basic Gray ink.  Ideas to remember for next time.

Share your opinion on this card and take a look at Monday’s card.  Let me know which one you would prefer for a masculine card.
