I absolutely love the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set by Stampin’ Up! but it’s not just for chicks. It also makes a fun Birthday Card for your favorite guy too! Just change up the colors a bit and you’ve got a great masculine card.

Flock to the fun with the Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set. It’s “chick” full of celebratory images and phrases you can use to make any birthday delightful. These quirky line-art chicks are ready to be stamped and colored using your favorite coloring technique.

But this set isn’t just for the chicks in your life! Change up the colors, add a bit of “brick wall” and you’ve got yourself a great card for the guys in your life! Use this set to celebrate birthdays, friendship, and more. 

Cajun Craze is one of my favorite colors to use in masculine cards. You can find other color combinations I’ve used for masculine cards here. The color combination I used for this card was pretty standard:
