Simple Birthday Card for a Man

This simple make of a Male themed card has been designed in Design Space software and cut on the Cricut Explore by our designer Angela Dodson.

"I quite like the look of silhouette’s to give a strong image and contrast, especially for Male themed Cards. This design could be used for all sorts of occasions, or just to say ‘Hello’. It features a man on the telephone and I thought it would be fun to add a speech bubble and the sentiment of ‘hello’. I have used black and white for contrast but also thought the Ivory linen would provide an interesting textured background and along with the Sky Blue Card, it also gives a slightly retro feel."

"I created a 5 ¾ x 5 ¾ “square card blank by scoring & folding PMD A4 Plain White card. Matting a square of Ivory linen onto a slightly larger square of black cardstock and then adhering to the card front with double sided tape. The layered sentiment has been assembled using cosmic shimmer glue and attached directly to the card at the top right hand side. The layered silhouette has also been assembled using cosmic shimmer glue but attached to the card front using 3D foam pads to give extra height and interest to the design. I think these would make great notecards in sets with a variety of different colour cardstocks from the PMD Colours range to contrast with the black."
