Super Hero Birthday Card

Hi again, Jenny here 🙂

I would like to share a Birthday card I made for a male friend. Sometimes masculine cards can be tricky – not all men like golf or football or drink beer lol! So many decoupage/paper packs contain just these images – I don’t like to stick to the stereotypes lol.

I knew this person likes marvel/ superheroes, so I used that as a starting point. I also knew that I wanted to create a scene – houses, a hillside and night sky.

Here is what I achieved:

Super hero scene.

To make the background I used Distress inks layered onto a white card panel. I then spritzed the inked panel with water to make the ink splatter into a starry sky effect. I also spritzed the panel with a mix of mica powders mixed in water – this creates a metallic or pearl effect water.

Night sky created with Distress inks and water flicking.

I stamped the houses with White Staz on ink, onto a black pearlized cardstock. The house stamps and dies are from Stampin’ up! I used a border die to create the hillside and coloured the stamped bear image with my pro-markers.

I used bright blue and red inks with a Starburst/pow stamp from the Stampin’ up! stamp set: Perpetual Calendar.

I hope that you enjoyed this share and find unique ways to make ‘difficult’ cards.

Take care and happy crafting!!

  2. The ‘starburst’ technique will be fabulous for a Bonfire night card/invite – it looks just like fireworks going ‘pop’. It would also be a wonderful idea for a night sky, snow scene on a Christmas card.

    I’m with you on the masculine cards being tricky. I can sit and ‘think’ for ages and sometimes still not come up with anything different. (However, I’ve made one this last week which I’m rather pleased with. Haven’t uploaded the photos yet so can’t blog about it though until I have).

    Great card Jenny, … oh … and I absolutely ADORE the envelope! WTG my clever crafty fingered friend. A really lovely project.
