Big on Birthdays for a Masculine Birthday Card

bigonbirthdaymasculinebirthdaycardoccasionscatalogstampinupcandyrattrayBig on Birthdays is an all greetings photopolymer stamp set in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, and I think it's a must-have!  Its bold images make quick and easy birthday cards a cinch.  They are also versatile as all but one can be used for boys and girls, men and women.  (There is one stamp that is decidedly feminine.)  You can see another card I made with Big on Birthdays here.

I created this masculine birthday card for my recent Stamping Bingo Night.  I love Emerald Envy, one of the 2016-2018 In Colors, for masculine cards.  It's a cool green that is bold, clear, and crisp.

My balloon is full of touchable texture with a clean, bold, and modern look.  I punched out the larger balloon from the Ballon Bouquet punch and then layered over it a die cut from the Balloon Pop Up Thinlet Dies (which do come as a bundle with a coordinating stamp set--for this card I used just the dies).  I love how the dies and punch work together!  If you have the Balloon Bouquet punch, I highly recommend this die set to take your balloons to greater heights (no pun intended:)  

I finished off my balloon with a bit of Emerald Envy Bakers Twine held in place with a mini glue dot and a tiny bow made from a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper and the Balloon Pop Up Thinlet Dies.

All the Stampin' Up! supplies are listed and linked below for your convenience.  There are lots of Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog items on this card!
