Masculine Happy Birthday Card - World of Good

Hello everyone! Today's card is a fairly masculine happy birthday card using the Beautiful World bundle from Stampin' Up!

The colors I chose were Misty Moonlight (new 2020 - 2022 In Color!), Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.

I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Misty Moonlight (card base): cut to 8½” x 5½”, scored at 4¼”

  • Very Vanilla (embossed layer): cut to 3¾" x 5"

  • World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (see image): cut to 3¾" x 3¼"

I also used the following stamps and die cuts from the matching sets:

  • Feather Quill stamp from the Beautiful World stamp set

  • Feather Quill die from the World Map dies

  • Happy Birthday stamp from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set

  • Can't believe you're another year older stamp from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set


  1. Cut your Misty Moonlight cardstock for your card base at 8½” x 5½” and then score at 4¼” - I used my paper trimmer and Simply Scored scoreboard

  2. Cut your Very Vanilla (layer for embossing) to 3¾" x 5"

  3. Cut your Very Vanilla sentiment base to 1¼” x 2½" - I used some scraps that I had on hand for this

  4. Cut down a piece of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series paper to 3¾" x 3¼" (see image for paper I used)

  5. Place the Very Vanilla into the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  6. Using clear block C, stamp HAPPY BIRTHDAY in Early Espresso ink, centered and slightly high

  7. Using clear block C, cover the "CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE ANOTHER YEAR OLDER!" stamp in Early Espresso ink then stamp off once before stamping the sentiment below the HAPPY BIRTHDAY

  8. Using Clear block C, take the feather quill stamp from the Beautiful World stamp set and cover with Early Espresso ink, stamp off twice then stamp behind the sentiment stamps (see image for further details)

  9. On scrap Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the feather quill image in Early Espresso ink then stamp another as a stamped off image (so it is a little lighter in color than the first)

  10. Using the feathered quill die from the World Map die set, die cut the stamped feathered quills

  11. Using your paper snips, rough up the edges of the Very Vanilla embossed cardstock, World of Good Designer Series paper and sentiment piece

  12. Lightly roll up the top left and bottom right corners of the Very Vanilla embossed cardstock (see image for further details)

  13. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the Very Vanilla embossed cardstock and center it on your Misty Moonlight card base

  14. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the World of Good Designer Series paper and center it on the embossed Very Vanilla

  15. Using a couple of glue dots, adhere the die cut and stamped feather quills angled towards the right, slightly off center and slightly higher then centered (see image for further details)

  16. Apply a few Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhere over the feather quills centered horizontally and slightly lower than center vertically
