The big Four O

It was my OH's birthday last week, and a big one at that. Now I know I'm not alone here when it comes to making mens cards, but I find them really hard. And obviously I'm not very good at funny cards either, but there you are. This is the card I gave him, he did laugh though.

Both lines of the sentiment are actually at the bottom of the stamp but I masked parts of the stamp when I inked it up

Supplies Used:
1. Papers - SU! Bashful Blue Designer Papers
2. Card - SU! Brocade Blue Card
3. Image - SU! Golden Oldies (Mini Catalogue)
4. Ribbon - SU! Bashfull Blue Striped Grosgrain (MC)
5. Other - Chipboard from stash
6. Medium - SU Stampin' Write Markers

This is such a fun card, it made me giggle. Bet OH loved it, Happy Birthday to him. Love the ribbon on it.

I have not heard of 'masking' the stamp before and am intrigued as to what you use to do this. This would be so useful with a few of my stamps. Do you just stick sellotape to it?
