Hello! Nicole here to share a brand-new video tutorial with you today. No matter how many products are out there to play with, we seems to still struggle with masculine cards (for any occasions!). Are you nodding right now? If so, I am sharing a super classic and clean birthday card that is perfect for guys. And if he happens to love birds, this is like a match made in heaven!

Winter Birds Stamp Set was released few weeks ago along with many other great stamp sets. This set really grabbed my attention because I love how detailed the images were. For today’s card, I chose this Chickadee image and used some Distress Markers to add colors. I won’t be going into details much here since you can watch the video tutorial below to see how it comes to life in person, but I will share some bullet points of today’s card.

– The bird image is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. It is crisp and clear and catches every detailed line of the image. It is also waterproof so it’s perfect for watercoloring!

– Minimal watercoloring. since the stamp set does most of the shading and texturing already, there is no need to add lots of colors or techniques to it. If you want to create a WOW result without doing too much, the Winter Birds Stamp Set is perfect for you.

– Keep the rest of the card simple. I wanted to bring as much as attention to the bird itself. So I kept the rest of the card really clean and simple. The only thing I did was to add an sentiment using the Sweet Pea Stamp Set.

That is all there’s to it! I hope you enjoy the video tutorial below. Thanks for stopping by!
