When I saw the Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set, I was thrilled as I could see the images would make fabulous outdoorsy guy cards. The He's the Man Designer Series Paper is the perfect complement for this stamp set. My idea was to make a "tent" card but have it be a little different. The embossed Basic White cardstock with the Timber 3D embossing folder is the perfect background for the bear image that was fussy cut with a mini margin around the image. I used Tear and Tape to affix the Bear Square to the upper and lower portions of the card front,

Extra Hint -
Extra Hint - Put an additional 3 1/4" square of Soft Succelent on the inside of the card front to make the middle section super secure.

Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set

He's The Man Designer Series Paper


Early Espresso Cardstock 7 1/4" x 4 1/4", scored at 5 1/2".

Early Espresso Cardstock 1 3/4" x 4 1/4".

He’s the Man Designer Series Paper (DSP) two pieces - 1 1/2" x 4", adhere one piece to the top front portion of the cardbase, and the other piece to the separate Early Espresso piece.

Soft Succulent Cardstock - two pieces 3 1/4" x 2 3/4".

Basic White Cardstock 3 1/8" x 2 5/8", embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and adhered to one piece of the Soft Succelent Cardstock.

Basic White Cardstock 3 1/4" x 2 3/4" to stamp the bear image from the Wildlife Wonder Stamp Set with Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad Ink, then fussy cut the image out. Raise the bear image up with Dimensionals.

To assemble the card front - Lay the lower piece lined up correctly with the bottom edge of the card. Apply Tear and Tape to the back top and lower edge of the middle "bear" section. Carefully apply the top portion first. Then align up the lower portion and affix bear to this portion.

With Retired- 1-1/4” and 1-3/8” Circle Punches, punch out a larger circle from Early Espresso, and the smaller circle from Basic White. Using Early Espresso ink, stamp the greeting. Adhere layers together and raise up on card front with dimensionals.

Add two Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to the lower left corner of the Bear Section.

With the Soft Succulent Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the greeting on the inner layer of Basic White Cardstock 4" x 5 1/4". Affix to inner card.

Adhere the extra piece of Soft Succulent to the back of the bear section so the card front is stronger and looks finished on the inside. 

Basic White Medium Envelopes with a matching envelope flap from the DSP cut 2 3/8" x 6".

All done, your favorite guy is going to love receiving this masculine Birthday Card for their special day!
