Masculine Car Birthday Card

It’s time for a Masculine Car Birthday Card! Some people say that masculine cards are the most difficult for them to create, so I made one that’s not plain but still fun!

A good background is key to making a card with a more masculine look, whether its for a birthday, a thank you, or a Father’s Day!

This color combo is so easy to use for masculine cards! Basic Gray has become one of my favorite neutrals, and when it gets a great pop when Old Olive is added, so I hope you try it.

First, I made this birthday card for “A Classic” in my life, and then thought this sketch would be great for a Father’s Day card, too! I show a picture of that card too after the tutorial in this post.

This is a great sketch to use for matching cards or a set.

See below for how to make this masculine card:

How to Make this Masculine Car Birthday Card:

Cut your paper:

  • Basic Gray: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″ for your cardbase.
  • Whisper White: 5″ x 3 3/4″. Also, cut a strip 1″ for the sentiment.


  • To stamp your background, use Basic Gray ink to randomly stamp the oil smudge all over your whisper white layer. Then, on top of that, stamp the sentiment a few times using old olive ink.
  • On a scrap of Old Olive, Stamp the car in gray. Then, Die-Cut it out.
  • Stamp your sentiment on that 1″ strip of white (You’re a Classic).

Adhere down:

  • Using your favorite adhesive, adhere the white layer to your cardbase.
  • Next, Add your sentiment to a 1 1/4″ strip of old olive cardstock, and trim it to a banner. Adhere it to your card front.
  • Lastly, add the car to your card using dimensionals!
