Digital stamp masculine birthday card idea

Di's Digistamps Gentleman Ted digital stamp stars on this masculine birthday card, by Paperesse.

This card was for my Father-in-law's recent birthday. Di's Digi Stamps Gentleman Ted digi serves as the card's focal image (if you like this stamp, it's on sale right now for just $1.00).

For my paper, I've used Little Llama Shoppe's Gentlemen Only digital paper pack. I created my sentiment using a circle frame from Pixel Scrapper (one of my favorite sources of free digital imagery) and free Annie BTN font.

Embellishments were kept to a minimum, but I went all out on layers. This is one heavy card. It was hand delivered though, so I didn't worry about it.

I like Di's Ted stamps for guy cards. She has some very cute ones. Like the Gibson Bear image I used on another recent birthday card for my cousin.

  1. This is one dapper bear. Beautifully colored - he's just got the perfect tilt of the head.

    So glad you joined us at Morgan's ArtWorld.

  2. What a fun card, love that teddy bear and he is coloured up so beautifully. Thanks for playing along with the something for the big or bigger boys challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

  3. Love those papers and what a dapper Teddy! Your coloring is awesome, as always.

  4. Love the wee bear! Awesome card for your father in law! Thanks for playing along with the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH for our "Something for the Big Boys" challenge!

  5. You have quite the eye for your light source... I found myself studying that on this image in particular. Your highlights and shadows are so consistent - beautifully done! That is high on my list to make my shadows more realistic and increase my contrasts. You either have an art background or you are just naturally gifted - my vote is both!

  6. Ohhhhhhh qu'il est beau cet ours !!! J'adore ta carte Shani !! Les papiers, les couleurs, la colorisation de l'image, tout est beau !! Il a dû être content ton beau-père.. J'adore !!

  7. Gorgeous card thank you for joining us over on Morgans Art World
