Birthday cards for a guy

Good Morning Everyone!

Ok so if you're like me, sometimes it just seems really hard to make a card for a guy. Well let me tell you, I've been on a roll with guys cards lately! We have alot of birthdays right now. This post I will share 3 different cards with you, 2 are somewhat similar, they were for my Father & Brother-in-law.

This first card is a "flip flop" or "swing" card. I had never saw this card style until I went to CHA in Chicago, I love it! This is going to be a long post, so I will post details on how to make this later.

The Gun was cut from Old West at 1 3/4"
The stars were cut at 1 1/4"
The stamp is from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases stamp set

This next card is a standard A2 card.
The gun on this card was cut at 2"
The "wanted" poster background was cut at 4"
The stamp is from a 40:31 Creations stamp set

While at CHA I also stumbled upon Raisin Boat stamps. Have you heard of them? Not only do they have their own stamp line with over 200 sets, but they offer a "Netflix" type program for stamps!!! How cool is that?!?!?  Head on over Here to check them out! You will love them!

I made this A2 size card for my Brother-in-law using their "Born to Ride" stamp set, as well as their Brick background stamp. I love how this card turned out, and can you believe it, no Cricut! That doesn't happen very often!! To get the coloring of the brick I first covered the entire stamp in red ink, then went over it in spots with brown ink, I think it turned out pretty cool!!

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a 40:31 Creation stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed these "guy" cards! 
Stayed tuned for a super cute "flip flop/swing" style Baby card!

Have a great day!
