Does this card look familiar? It should. I liked the sympathy card that I made so much that I decided to make it into a masculine birthday card. It is still kind of girly but I'm okay with it. I started off by running a piece of white card stock through my Big Shot with Stampin' Up!s Top Note die. I cut inside of the perforated lines to make it smaller. I then ran a black piece through with the die. On a white card base I stamped the two single flowers from Stampin' Up!s Eastern Blooms with black Sta Z on. Next I stamped the branch image (also in black Sta Z on) onto the white Top Note piece. I used "happy birthday" from Stampin' Up!s A Little Birthday cheer stamped in Stampin' Up!s Real Red craft ink and embossed it with clear Stampendous embossing powder. Finally I took a piece of bulk red ribbon that I purchased at Basket Market and tied it around the Top Note die cut and adhered that to the card base.
