Hi! It’s Candy Spiegel returning with another project I created. This one was designed for my husband’s birthday.
For the cover, I started with a piece of Velvet Adhesive Sheet in beige and embossed it with Trendy Tiles 2 embossing folder. I was trying to replicate some sort of brick roadway.
After embossing, I coated the raised portion with Staz-On Ink in black. Then, I created the corners with a corner rounder.
I die cut one Happy Birthday out of black card stock and one out of patterned paper and layered the two to create a shadow effect.
I then transferred my Peel-Off sticker on a piece of double sided adhesive on white card stock and applied Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I colored my image with Copic markers. Els has a great You video of this technique: Silk Microfine Glitter – Coloring with Alcohol Markers.
For the inside of the card, I used the Lots of Pops die set.
I added “Happy Birthday” on a banner from the Assorted Words Peel-Off sheet.
The saying was printed on the computer. I used the extra dies from the Katie Label Pivot Card to create the labels. I added tiny steering wheels from the Peel-Off sheet to the edges.
I also added a few planes from that same sticker sheet to the background.
My husband loved it … what do you think?

Nice masculine card! I’m sure he’ll love it!
Fantastic job on the card. I have bought myself some glitter recently but haven’t played yet but am looking forward to it after some many of you fab ladies are using it in so many cards.
I love glitter … especially the cool diamond and warm diamond because you can color it with your Copic, Tombow or Distress Ink markers.
Hi Candy…Wow! Gr8 Card…I Love It……Male cards ideas are hard to do, thanks for this gr8 card idea!!
You are so welcome!
Such a fabulous card for a male.
Thank you, Frances.
Wonderful card. I have a brother this would be perfect for. Thanks for sharing.
It was not difficult to make, Dani. I am sure you can do something similar for your brother!
Great card Candy! I find masculine cards more difficult to create, but you’ve done a fabulous job. The Velvet Adhesive Sheet on the front was a great idea & your computer generated sentiment is perfect with the steering wheels on the sides.
Thank you, Raquel.
I just love this card, Candy. I knew there was something different about the front, but couldn’t put my finger on it. Velvet Sheets! Great idea to emboss and ink it – — this is a really great masculine card.
The velvet sheets emboss beautifully!
really nice card
Thank you, Sharon!
Such a Great Masculine card Candy….More Peel offs to my list 🙂
I love this one, too, Kelly
Wish I had the right peel off stickers. My son’s birthday is coming up next week and with the addition of a ship instead of the airplanes it would be perfect. Thanks for the ideas.
A ship would be a great sticker to have!
Hi Candy-What a wonderful imagination and vision you had with this card. It is an awesome card for a male and sometimes those are hard to come up with. I love all of the different and inventive ways you have used the materials.
Thank you, Nancy.
