Masculine Happy Birthday

Today's post is especially for the dudes. :-)

I thought that this set from Visible Image Stamps was perfect for a little 'Mr. Handy' Birthday card. The main theme, other than tools, for this card is embossing. I love encouraging my customers to touch and feel the cards!

The metal plate rubber stamp that I used for this birthday card is from the Heavy Metal stamp set, however there is a new background stamp, Metal Plate, that is larger than the one offered in the Heavy Metal Stamp set. Its brand new so check it out!
I had some fabulous grey paper for the metal background! The metal plate is accented with four grommets and popped off the page with dimensionals for depth.

 I wanted to incorporate white again on top of the grey, so I stamped out the drill from Heavy Metal stamp set, covered it in opaque white embossing powder, heated it and popped it off the metal plate with dimensionals after I cut it out.
 Visible Image Stamps stamp so consistently and clearly every time you use them!

The right side of the card was created by using the screw and bolt from the Heavy Metal set individually. Additionally I added the sentiment celebrate from the Handy Hints set.

Inside, I also used the same sentiment set to create a Happy Birthday sentiment.

To finish off this project, I stamped the screw, knut and bolt in the right hand corner of the front of the envelope!

I hope you enjoyed this post! This project was a lot of fun to create.


  1. Omgz! I love that diamond plate stamp. I love the way you embossed it. I must have it. The drill and screws are so perfect with this stamp. Great masculine card.

    1. Thank you Mary!! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D
