Happy Birthday Dad

Happy Friday! :o)

I hope you're all doing great. :o)

Today I want to share with you two birthday cards I made this week, one for my day and other for my boyfriend. They both have birthday today. I'll share cards in two separate posts.


First card today is this CAS (clean and simple) Monochrome Masculine Birthday Card I made for my dad.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!! You are such an inspiration and a wonderful teacher. 



To make this card I was inspired with fantastic Jennifer's McGuire Masked Stripes. What an awesome result!! :o)

For my card layout I used CAS(E) this Sketch #160.

My dad's favorite color is blue, so obvious color choice was blue. I used my favorite Distress Ink blue shade, Blueprint Sketch.

Using mini ink blending tool, I blended colors directly on a white top folded card base. My masking and steps how I blended inks were slightly different than Jennifer's.

After I finished blending the panel, it was a bit too dark for my taste. I didn't want to use water on my card, so I used white acrylic paint to light up some parts (the lightest stripes). I didn't mix acrylic paint with any water, I added it directly on the card from a tube and spread it with paint brush.

Next up was a sentiment. It's on Croatian and it says: Happy birthday dad. I typed it on a piece of white cardstock paper using UNIS tbm de Luxe Typewriter.

At the end I glued sentiment on the card, added some white enamel stickers and my card was finished.
