Masculine Marquee card

A somewhat masculine card today, made with the Marquee Messages set and kept fairly plain with only a few layers.

It’s back to the Dapper Denim/Mint Macaron combo that I love, with the addition of a little Soft Sky to lift the darker colour.


The card base is an A6 portrait of Mint Macaron. A layer of Dapper Denim was run through the Lucky Stars embossing folder before adhering direct to the card front. Using Basic Black ink the open Marquee Messages image was stamped separately onto 2 pieces of Whisper White and one each of Soft Sky and Mint Macaron card. The “It’s Your” sentiment was stamped in the centre of a Whisper White version and the “Birthday” sentiment was stamped on the Mint Macaron banner, both with Basic Black ink. Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Crushed Curry were used to colour various elements. The Birthday Banner was trimmed from the Mint Macaron version and paper pieced onto the Whisper White version. Stars from a second white version were coloured in, trimmed and paper pieced to get the yellow stars. The arrow was trimmed from the Soft Sky version and popped up over the Whisper White layer with dimensionals and all were popped up on the card front. A few Soft Sky enamel shapes were added beneath.

On the Whisper White insert another sentiment and more stars from the set were stamped in Basic Black ink and the stars coloured with Crushed Curry marker.

I think I’ll have to have a go at making a girly version of this card too 🙂
