Simple Sunday - Masculine Washi

Hi there! 

I thought it was time to share another simple masculine card - around here they're always in demand and I'm constantly trying to think of fresh ideas. 

Embarrassing story I made today's card at the same time as last week's Freshly Made card. Now I'm not very good at remembering to get birthday cards to folks on time so I thought having a few belated cards in stock would be good. So I'd photographed them both and stuck them in the card box. Last Sunday morning I was in a hurry to write Stuart's uncle a birthday card and reached for the one that I'd just made....unfortunately the wrong one! He opened it and said..."Its not belated, my birthday is today." Oh dear, I was very embarrassed! 

Stamp Set: Remembering Your Birthday
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar
Cardstock: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
Washi Tape: Retro Fresh

I know I'm not a great lover of diagonals but I'm trying to explore different things and I thought this was a fun way to use washi tape. 

Starting with the stripy layered it up, one V at a time. I then used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the birthday stamp just in the perfect position. 

What do you think? This would be fun with any of Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous washi tapes. 

Happy Stampin',
