The Gangs All Meer Birthday Card

Hellooooo weekend!  I'm so happy for a lazy Saturday morning.  Jeff and I will be meeting my son, Wayne and his boys for his Birthday dinner later today!  I did some searching for Masculine cards on Pinterest this morning and after looking at quite a few of them, I decided I could come up with something on my own just as well.  I think if Wayne liked to fish, or golf, or hunt, it would be easier!  Ugh!  I looked through some of my newer stamp sets and decided to use the Gangs All Meer Stamp Set.  I guess cute little animals will work for any birthday!  

I stamped thse three adorable little images in a row using Versafine Black Ink because it's waterproof.  I used my ink pads and Aqua Painter to watercolor the picture in.  The ink colors used were Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Soft Suede, and Pool Party.  As you'll notice I cut my Happy Birthday to a Standup Friend sentiment into two pieces so I could just use the Happy Birthday.  I used a Black Stampin' Write Marker to connect the ground once the watercolor panel dried.  I backed it with a thin matt of Soft Suede Cardstock and then ran some twine around the bottom of the panel. I stamped the hate on a scrap of cardstock and fussy cut it to fit on the cute little Meercat's head.   I found some aztec-look retired DSP and used it for a background on my Soft Suede Cardbase.  I loved the way that it turned out.  

Now for the inside....

I kept the inside really simple by stamping the little cactus in the lower right corner.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and used my stampin' Blends to color it in.  This will leave me lots of room to write a personal message.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
