I cased a project I made last week for this birthday card using the All Aboard Stamp Set. This set was retired many years ago, but my friend is a retired railroad conductor, so I absolutely had to use it. If you'd like to re-create this card, you can easily replace the train image and tracks with another image from a current stamp set. To see a list of my favorite current masculine stamp sets, and the card that I cased, click here.
I used lots of texture and distressing techniques to give this card a masculine feel. I sponged all of the Very Vanilla layers lightly with Early Espresso Ink, and spritzed and distressed the Sahara Sand layer. I used a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the tracks lined up perfectly.
