Two quick cards for men

We have two blokey birthdays this week - Gareth's friend Jez, and his brother Simon - so I've just made a couple of really quick & simple cards for them.

This one uses the Fun & Fast Notes birthday stamp, stamped with Versamark and embossed in white embossing powder. I've also used the Nestabilities Labels One dies, layering Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock.

This one is based on a lovely set of cards I spotted on Emma's blog Devotion to the Dream. The base card is Ruby Red cardstock, A6 size. The letters are stamped with the Just Perfect alphabet in Ruby Red ink, cut out and the edges inked (messily!) with black ink. The white lines were drawn with a white Signo gel pen.

Thanks for looking!

I love the modern feel of these cards. Made me look at this stamp set in a new light.
