Make A Guy Birthday Card Using Sea Turtle Stamp Set

Hello lovelies! I am sharing how to make a guy birthday card using Sea Turtle stamp set with you today.

Can we call this ombré?

Surely it fits the style of ombré? I mean it goes through a series of lovely blues, dark to light. Is that what ombré is? Maybe some of you wiser than me creatives can drop a comment below to tell me!

For this card I have gone with a standard card fold.

First, you stamp the bubble image from the Sea Turtle stamp set straight onto the card base.

Now, if you are worried about ruining an entire card base because of a bit of dodgy stamping, I suggest cutting a 14.3 cm x 10 cm layer.

I was in too much of a rush as I was very excited about inking up a new stamp set and stamped straight onto the card base. I discovered there was a small learning curve with the bubble image from this stamp set. It took a few goes to get the pressure right. I am so glad I decided to use my stamp positioning tool!


My ombré colour choice (from dark to light) were Stampin’ Up! ink pads Blueberry Bushell, Pretty Peacock, Lost Lagoon, Azure Afternoon and Balmy Blue.


I finished by stamping HAPPY BIRTHDAY in Blueberry Bushell.

The ‘happy birthday’ words came from the Biggest Greeting stamp set.

A single layer, stamps, ink and paper masculine birthday card!
