Guy's Superhero Birthday Card

Last week was my cousin's husband's birthday and we went to a BBQ at their house to celebrate, so I wanted to bring a birthday card for him. (Along with a pound of coffee—love that free pound a week I get as a Starbucks employee now!) 

Guy cards are always more difficult to create, but CTMH's Superhero paper is perfect for the job.
I only had about 10 minutes to make this card so it came together quickly. I used the same sketch as for THIS card. I already had the Superman image from Super Powers stamped and cut out, so I just had to color him with colored pencils. Then I cut a couple of ovals on my Cricut with the Art Philosophy Cartridge to make him stand out a bit and adhered him with 3D foam.

Quick and cute, just how I like it!

The Happy Birthday stamp is from the retired Happy Birthday stamp set, but there are now a couple of awesome birthday sentiment stamp sets to choose from: Just a Number and Card Chatter—Birthday.

If you'd like any of these products, you can shop for CTMH products on my website.
