Sunset With Grass Masculine Birthday Cards

I saw this card on Dawn Griffith's blog and thought it was a wonderful masculine card design. It's an easy card to make too, with some sponging, masking and brayering - no tricky techniques involved! Click here to view Dawn's fab video tutorial. I had to substitute my Hero Arts grass stamp for the stamp that Dawn used on her card. I made one card very similar to Dawn's and made a second card slightly differently.

This card will go to Jan's hubby Alan for his birthday next month.



This next card went to our neighbour Jim as a belated birthday card as I just missed the date, oops!

Stamps: Hero Arts Silhouette Grass, SU! Wow Flowers & Sincere Salutations sets

These are stunning; I particularly love the first one with the brads on the side, SO striking!
