A Good Man Birthday Card

My son-in-law Robby had a birthday last week.  Of course he gets a handmade card!  This is the card I made for him this year.

A Good Man Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is Robby to a T.  If you have followed me, you know that I am the proud grandmother of Sagan.  She's my only grandchild.  Robby is a wonderful father to her and husband to my daughter Jessie.  I always include a few pics of Sagan at the end of my Tuesday's Timely Tidbits newsletter each Tuesday.  Feel free to subscribe.  I give lots of news, but I think Sagan at the end is the best part.  The A Good Man stamp set is perfect!

This card begins with a base of Pool Party that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

For the words down the right side of the card front, use the Stamparatus.  The HAPPY BIRTHDAY is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  Position this stamp between the top right corner and the first notch on the side of the Stamparatus.  Stamp the saying, then take out the clear plate and put it down a section.  Continue to the end of the paper.  This is called hinge stamping.  Position the Here's to You stamp.  This stamp is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.  Hinge stamp your way down the paper again.  I did stamp in Stazon Black.

Add a piece of Pool Party check paper to the left side.  This measures 7/8 x 5 1/2.  This is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.

Stamp the image on a piece of Whisper White.  Use Stazon Black.  Color the image with pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 1 and 2.  Use a Blender Pen after coloring lightly with the pencils.

Around the outside of the image, I colored with the Light Pool Party Blend.  Cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.  The saying is from the A Good Man stamp set.  Glue the part that overlaps the label and add a dimensional behind the rest.

Here's the inside of Robby's card.  The saying is from A Good Man and from Perennial Birthday.  The image is from A Good Man.  Color with the colored pencils here too.

This was my first time using the A Good Man stamp set.  I've been waiting for Robby's birthday.  It's so perfect for him.  I bet you know someone who deserves a card made with this set.

Thanks so much.  If you need supplies, I would really love to help you.  I would be honored!
