Birthday Dandelions

Hello there fellow crafty people,

Today I am sharing a card that a colleague of mine asked me to make for her, for a male friend named Cliff who is turning 60. I needed some inspiration as man cards are not my forte, and then into my inbox popped this lovely card from Therese and this was all the inspiration I needed….thanks Therese!!

This is also the first card I have made using my first ever set of nesties – I know – a bit behind the eight ball, but I am in love with them! I want more!! The dandelions are from a set called ‘Just Dandy’ from Practicing Creativity and are white embossed.

A close up of the embossing.


Stamps: Practicing Creativity – Just Dandy
Ink: VersaMark Watermark Ink
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured single fold), Turquoise Bazzill card – 2 shades
Other Supplies: Nestabilities -Labels 4, American Craft White embossing powder, heat gun, white DMC thread, Kaisercraft pearls – snow, Computer generated font – Segoe Script printed in grey, white striped paper from Fashion Textures Creative Stationery.

This card took many attempts to get to this finished product but I am pleased with how it turned out. Originally I clear embossed the dandelions but they didn’t stand out enough on the card.

Thanks for looking. I have another 60th b’day card to share with you soon.



  1. Wow Marion! That card is gorgeous…and manly all in one 🙂

  2. Thanks for your kind comment. This card was worth the ‘many attempts’ it’s a great male card. (I have a similar stamp which I just love!)
