I needed a masculine birthday card for a lot of people to sign. I loved Mary Fish’s card using the Birthday Blast stamp set (available Jan. 4th) so I adapted it to make mine.
This card uses one of my favorite color combinations…night of navy and very vanilla. I started with a piece of 7 x 10 night of navy cardstock and scored it at 5″. The gold foil measures 6 1/2 x 4 1/2 and the very vanilla layer is 6 1/4 x 4 1/4. I stamped my image twice in VersaMark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I added a gold metallic foil doily. The sentiment layer measures 1 1/2 x 5 and is heat embossed in gold. These colors are classic together and really make a statement with the gold embossing.
I needed to have plenty of room for everyone to write on the inside. I cut a piece of 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 very vanilla and scored it at 4 3/4. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and heat embossed the stars in gold.I adhered the right side to the inside of the card. I like the way it provides plenty of space for everyone to write a personal message.
I made a matching very vanilla envelope using the envelope punch board and I even heat embossed it in gold. I love how quick and easy it is to heat emboss and it really makes a big impact.
Stamp Sets: Birthday Blast (avail. Jan 4th), Crazy About You Inks: Night of Navy, VersaMark Papers: Night of Navy, Gold Foil, Very Vanilla Tools & Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Metallic Foil Doilies
I hope today’s card helps you see how you can take a design you like and adapt it to make it work for you.
Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful card, Jeanie. I love how you made an extra page for many people to sign. This color combo is great and I love that new stamp with the gold doily. So, so pretty!
Very clever Jeanie!!! Love the card inside the card. I can’t wait to get my hands on this set!
I agree….very clever! Your card is beautifully done and the colors are so rich! It will surely put a smile on the recipient’s face especially with all the birthday wishes.
Love your version of this card! The added details and embossed envelope are terrific! Perfect masculine birthday card that anyone would be proud to sign their name to!
Absolutely Gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your version! It is stunning!
Hi Jeanie, I really love this card. I like how you stamped it inside too. I cannot get back on your blog. I signed up and it says I will get a confirmation email and I never get it. I’m still working on things on my end also. Have a great weekend.
LOVE this card, Jeanie. Hmmm…maybe I shouldn’t have traded with you (lol) cause now I KNOW I want this set!!! And what a great idea to put a card within a card. I recently made a card for a lot of people to sign but just put an extra panel on the inside. We ran out of room! Im going to remember this one for next time. Thanks for another great idea! <3
Love the card but cannot ‘pin’ it to Pintresr 😟
If you are viewing it in your email you probably need to click on the title and it will take you to the blog where you should be able to pin it! Hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by!
Beautiful card the nicest version using this stamp/die set I have seen.
Great tip for extra writing space too.
